What we're about

This group is for all beginning jazz musicians, for people who are looking for a community where they can explore jazz and learn alongside other jazz lovers and beginning musicians. The aim of this group is to build a community where everyone can be comfortable playing jazz tunes and meet new people.

During the meetup we can explore tunes that people are interested in learning. We would all get a change at improvisation, continually master the tunes, and of course, have a lot of fun. The idea is that this community can serve you as a great starting point to launch you into other jam sessions.

Let's continue to build this Jazz learning community! We can start arriving at 7:00 pm and we will begin playing at around 7:15 pm. Bring a copy of your Real Book, if you have it... or sheet music for a tune you want to explore. I have Real Book versions in other keys as well. I am an alto saxophone player, but anyone playing any instrument and jazz is welcome to attend. I have one amplifier and one electric guitar. I also have a microphone. Suggested songs: 1. Cantaloupe Island (Empyrean Isles) 2. Girl from Ipanema (Getz/Gilberto) 3. Equinox (The Very Best of John Coltrane) 4. Night Dreamer (Wayne Shorter) And... anything else you would like! Bring anything you would like to drink and/or snack on. This is my home so I expect everyone to respect it and join the session as a great fun learning opportunity! Best, Alejandro
