Let's get together and jam.

  • Sep 22, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

“Last time was a blast, so let's do it again. I can offer to host monthly meetups in my house in Belmont on weekends.”

Each musician attending, please suggest 3 tunes in advance. This way others will have a chance to look at your tunes in advance and prepare. We will first go through the tunes each one suggests in advance, then do others....

We will start at about 3:30 and end by 7PM.

Also, starting March 2013, I will collect $10 per person per calendar year to cover the $144 per year cost to maintain the Jazz Jamming group on the Meetup website. For those coming anytime during 2013, please bring $10 towards the payment. This is a one-time payment per calendar year. Thanks very much.

    I'm sorry--feeling under the weather. Better to take it easy so I can be at work tomorrow. Catch everyone next month!

    Hi Sung, if you take bus 73 from Harvard square, you get off at poplar a street and trapelo, one stop after Cushing square. The bus stops literally in front of my door. Kalo

    I'd like to play: 1) Sandu 2) My ideal 3) Yesterdays

    September 16, 2013

    • John M.

      Sandu! Sweet! First tune I ever learned.

    Also, this might be too much to ask... I realized the location is a bit too far to ride my bike from apartment. Could any of you give me a ride? I live in Davis Square, but I can meet you someplace else like Harvard Square.
    Let me know!

    Looking forward to meeting everyone! I'm admittedly still trying to recover what I lost when I played in college, so I won't suggest any tunes I can't play yet on the trombone! My suggestions:

    This I Dig of You -- by Hank Mobley, "Soul Station" -- Real Book v. 2
    Au Privave -- by Charlie Parker -- Real Book v. 1
    Little Sunflower -- by Freddie Hubbard, "Backlash" -- Real Book, v. 1

    Stuff I want to work up down the road:

    It All Comes Back to You -- by Onaje Allan Gumbs, on Woody Shaw "Stepping Stones: Live at the Village Vanguard" -- Real Book? Ha!
    Soul-Leo -- by Mulgrew Miller, "Wingspan" -- No real book that I'm aware of
    Never Say Yes -- on "Cannonball Adderley and Nancy Wilson" -- dunno about lead sheets
    Joy Spring -- by Clifford Brown, on "Clifford Brown and Max Roach" -- Real Book v. 1
    Tiny Capers -- by Clifford Brown, on "Jazz Immortal" -- New Real Book (Sher) v. 3

      Thanks for suggesting the tunes John. I will check them out. Kalo

    This will be my first meet up as well. What tunes do you all have in mind? I would like to spend some time practicing them before we meet.

    September 15, 2013

    • Kaloyan T.

      Hi Sung,

      September 15, 2013

    • Kaloyan T.

      Some standard ones that we play frequently would be All the things you are, Blue Bossa. You can also practice some tunes you like and suggest them to us. We'll follow as well as we can. Thanks. kalo

      Welcome Larry! Look forward to playing with you.
