On the upcoming days, I will be presenting the line-up, one by one, for 2019, 4th edition of
#jazznewbloodALIVE Showcase @EFGLondonJazzFestival @WaterlooCreativeStudio, scheduled for NOV 24th. I first spotted Saxophonist Donovan Haffner when he was 14 or 15 at Tomorrow's Warriors sessions and by the end of last year showcase, I knew he was going to be our 1st choice. In our 2019, female-dominated line-up, Donovan Haffner perfectly represents the new generation #malejazzpower coming through.
At 17, I really appreciate his restraint but, at the same time, full commitment to Jazz, punched by his amazing talent and skill on his instrument. FYI, his last appearance was a festival gig with Moses Boyd in Italy. Donovan will be performing his original music for us.
with the live performances of last year's edition.
