We love the Festival of Chichester. Jazz Smugglers have become one of the famous FESTIVAL BANDS in SUSSEX. The JAZZ SMUGGLERS EVENTS are all different. Sometimes the music is full of Gershwin and Cole Porter. At other times we are playing songs loved by Jazz Club patrons. In the Festival of Chichester 2015 we are playing songs from the shows such as My Fair Lady, some straightahead jazz, some jazz funk, some blues. We are playing for an Afternoon Tea dance and for a village Fete. We are to run a Jazz Comedy show. Maria our top jazz singer has a show of her own, and we are to share an evening with a Schubert String quartet We are even running a special event for Artists to compose abstracts based upon our music and our jazz solos.

THE SMUGGLERS JAZZ WORKSHOP IS DIFFERENT - AND SOME SAY IT IS MUCH BETTER
In everyday jazz workshops each person does a solo in turn.
With the Smugglers Jazz Workshop we go the next stage of all playing togetheras a band.
We create intros, and codas as we play. We do new songs most evenings.
With Jazz Smugglers you develop your playing skills, your jazz chords, your musical skills and your techniques of playing with others.
With Jazz Smugglers, you play blues, jazz swing, jazz standards, all the popular jazz music
Everyone feels that they have probelms with playing in less popular keys. So we did Watermelon Man in F7. Then we did it weekly in a new key for 30 minutes a time, covering all 12 keys. In each one we found the Lydian, played the blues scales and alt scales.
We’ll do the same thing with Autumn Leaves next., more complex minor 11 V 1. That is what we do
has posted over 100 videos, interviews,
tutorials, films of jazz players, has had 6,000 page views from folks learning to play jazz.
