The Rhythm Changes conference has come to a close, and this website is now full of excerpts, photographs, video and audio recordings of the event. Not just the panel sessions and keynotes, but also some of the conversations, the music and the context as well.
There’s a lot more to read, look at, watch and listen to if you go back through the blog (start here and just keep scrolling), but I thought it might be nice to compile a few pieces together into this one post – just to give you a flavour of what went on.
