Play Jazz!

Let's get together and play some music. Here's a list of some tunes we'll be working on:

(none yet - please leave a comment if you have any suggestions!)

It's highly recommended that you bring a copy of The Real Book (Sixth Edition). You're also free to bring any other music (maybe even your own compositions?) you'll want to read through.

We'll be in one of the studios at The Studio. http://thestudio.org/REHERSAL/reherse.html

These studios run anywhere from $38-$66 for all three hours, so please bring a few dollars to help defray the expense.

    Sam Ash is having a $15 coupon today so I'm hoping to pick up a copy of a Real Book on the way today. I play bass but I don't read notation, I'm just focusing on the chord charts so I think the standard version should be fine with me. Is this the one I should be looking for? http://www.amazon.com/The-Real-Book-Edition-Instruments/dp/B000VZSOI4

    Welcome Christina.
    All levels of jazz-playing are here.
    The studio is $66, Fernando, so if 11 people show up it'll be six bucks each.

    Hi every, I'm just wondering if I could join since i'm a classically trained flutist, out of shape...and really new into jazz so more a jazz beginner at this stage. Is this a practice group for more advanced musicians? thx!

    Hi.
    I reserved studio B today for Saturday's jam from 3 to 6. It's one of the bigger spaces, since we have nine people at least planning to come.
    Welcome, Joseph and David. For the new people, it's The Studio, 251 West 30th Street, between 7th and 8th avenues, from 3 to 6. We use The Real Book, edition 6, and music people bring in.
    See you then.

    Hi everyone.
    Looks like we may have a big turnout Saturday. I'll reserve a bigger room tomorrow than we had last time.
    Welcome new members Billy, Marty, and Eric. We use The Real Book, edition 6, but you can bring in copies of any songs you want to work on.
    Vinnie, I don't have an e-file for the session. Here are some of the songs we did: Summertime, All of Me, Autumn Leaves, Girl From Ipanema, Afternoon in Paris, Misty, Black Orpheus, How High the Moon, All the Things You Are, It Don't Mean a Thing, Body and Soul, and I Should Care.
    Fernando, it's great that you'll be able to be there for the full session.
    See you then.

    Hey Edgar (and Mark and anyone else): Feel free to suggest songs. We use The Real Book, edition 6, but anyone can bring in copies of songs not in the book. We did Summertime, which isn't in the book, during the last jam, and I'll bring some copies of it.

      Don, if you happen to have an electronic copy of the song list you brought last time, could you distribute it? Vinnie

    Looks like I might be able to stay for the 3 hours. Looking forward to playing some more jazz.
