Dear SlideMeister Community!

Every Sunday in January 3pm GMT  and starting from 10th I will be doing a Zoom Talk on some of the greatest chromatic jazz players of all time -  Stevie, Larry, Toots and then we'll  take a look at some younger jazz contemporaries.

Accompanied by photos, audio, video and original interviews the talks will include educational elements of interest to complete beginners and advanced, and end with Q & A + possible surprise live guests.

1 - 10th Jan:  Stevie Wonder
Looks in detail at 'Eivets Rednow', the legendary harmonica album Stevie made of Bacharach songs, examines some of his solos & how Adam got to dep for him playing with Sting and the Eurythmics.

2 - 17th Jan:  Larry Adler
Includes music, and anecdotes from  several key artists who worked with Larry, excerpts from an Australian tour and a recent interview with  his daughter Katelyn illustrated with images from the family archive.

3 - 24th Jan:  Toots Thielemans
Adam interviewed Toots Thielemans in 1996 not realising that a year later they would both be working on the feature film 'Hard Rain'.  Hear  clips  from the original interview and and insights into  a selection of Toot's harmonica solos.
4 - 31st Jan:  Contemporary Jazz Harmonica 
Based on original interviews, Adam explores the work of some  great contemporary jazz harmonica players including Mathias Heise, Yvonnick Prene, Antonio Serrano, Hermine Deurloo and GrĂ©goire Maret.

Dear Friends far and wide,

A huge thank you to  the 70+ who attended last Sunday's Stevie Wonder Zoom Lecture - and  to those who very kindly donated. Your praise and good comments have inspired no end!

And a special thank you to HUK Chairman Pete Hewitt and Vice Chair Sam Wllkinson who will be co-hosting again.

Coming up this Sunday LARRY ADLER - I have some new material to share with you, completely different to last week. Including exclusive interviews with two great artists who toured with Larry on his Australian tour to promote Gershwin's World - highly respected singer and actor Issy Van Randwyck and my friend - keyboard player, West End MD and Royal Holloway Ph D student Kelvin Thomson (http://www.kelvinthomson.com/) who will also be joining us live.

To honour Larry I will perform live a Bach Partita  on the very harmonica that has Larry's name on it - given to me by my Dad for [Christmas] in .. 1972 -(  and never played by me cause too complicated to find the notes on a 4 octave instrument  except in 1983 in the ship's band cruise photo you saw last week where we marched around the ship's deck playing a song for Baked Alaska ..and no one could hear the wrong notes I played cause the horns drowned me out!)

Here is a short preview video I did on Youtube - please feel free to share this link:
