The Levine jazz jam is an opportunity for musicians of any age and proficiency to experience jazz from the inside. In a fun and structured environment facilitated by Levine jazz faculty members, musicians will get a chance to play and improvise on well-known jazz standards.
Jam sessions are a musical environment that everyone regardless of skill level can benefit from and enjoy, and we will have charts (sheet music) on hand so you don't need to worry about being perfectly prepared. All you need to do is come out and play! These jams are $5 at the door (or time of RSVP) for students not currently enrolled in Levine.
This jam will be focused less on a workshop of new tunes, and more on jamming! Jeffrey Chappell and Chris Brown will lead the group through "Take the A Train", other tunes called may include ones worked on in previous jams, such as: "Stolen Moments", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", "Footprints" "Mr. P.C." "Summertime" "Cantaloupe Island" "Blue Bossa" "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise" "Sunnymoon for Two", and possibly "I've Got Rhythm" - we will have some C, Bb, and Eb charts on hand, but students are encouraged to bring their own Real Book!
