THE SOUTHWEST, THE REDWOODS & ALL THAT JAZZ

HANNE WILLIAMS-BARON (IM 2015) is a very colorful trombonist. Since summer break started she’s been hanging out, having adventures with her pals, redoing her bedroom and exploring new music. This week, a wedding will take her on a road trip through the vibrant reds and ochers of the Grand Canyon to the more subtle tones of the Arizona desert, with a stop at the University of Arizona to check out their brass program. Then its back to the city for a day of repose and packing a bag for 2 weeks in Cazadero.

After her time in Western Sonoma county, Hanne is headed back to the Bay Area, switching from the quiet cool of the creeks, rivers and redwoods to the bright tones of Girls Jazz Camp in Berkeley in preparation for SFJazz auditions in August.

Literally and figuratively, a veritable rainbow.
