The Barbados Jazz Society, at its recent Annual General Meeting, continued its support of two stalwarts of the Barbados Jazz scene. BJS is partnering, as the Society did in 2013, with Stefan Walcott and the 1688 Collective, to showcase jazz in a number of school workshops. Stefan was presented with a cheque for $1,300 as he takes the 1688 Collective to the schools again in 2014.
