The Groove Warehouse was recently visited by James Whiting (Jazz Vibraphonist / Percussionist / Musical Director) for a jazz vibraphone and improvisation clinic and to celebrate the launch of his latest album – HARD MINCE. James is due to extend his studies of percussion performance as a Doctoral student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in Janurary 2016 and we were very fortunate that he chose the Groove Warehouse as one of the stops on his tour.
The attendees at the clinic were shown various aspects and techniques for advanced vibraphone playing.
James was accompanied by Tate Sheridan (piano), Eric Ajaye (bass) and Gary France (drums) at the CD launch in front of a full house.
