Jazz/Pop with Body and Soul!
Johan ROOZE (NL)

Jazz/Pop is not just singing a different repertoire. It is another way of singing, thinking and feeling. Using different vocal techniques. Using "Jazz" inflections. Groovin' rhythms not only with the voice, but with the whole body. (Shake your ...). It is telling a different story. For singers and conductors. Come and join the experience!
