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.

    Paul, thanks for letting me try the fretless. The Ibanez Portamento looks like a good model to pick up. It's specifically designed to emulate the tones from an upright. I didn't try the extended range (30 frets!) neck but I could definitely see that being useful and it would handily take care of any need for a six string, given the upper range.

      I run mine with the neck up off.

    Good time. We were perhaps a bit too loud, but lots of good playing around.

    Hi everyone.
    I reserved room F again for the jam this Saturday from 3 to 6. For new people, that's at The Studio, 251 West 30th, between 7th and 8th, on the third floor. Jay, if you plan to bring your guitar and bass again, maybe Paul could bring his sax as well as his bass, since we have just one horn player at the moment and four guitarists.
    If you signed up and can't make it, please call or text me [masked]) or post a note on this site.
    See you then.
    Don

    watermelon man herbie hancock is a nice funky blues that i have recently rediscovered easy chord changes that can be easily memorized after one reading freeing everyone up to focus on solos

      Not sure, but you knew what I meant when I explained the Cantaloupe Island chord progression!

      The food show reference, anyway... have to check out that tune

    We usually start off with a 12-bar blues -- something by Miles or Monk or Coltrane.
    Get The Real Book, edition 6. Most of the songs we do are in that book. We do the standard jazz repertoire.

  • Alex L.

    Do you guys start off with Tune Up? What songs do you guys usually play?
