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.
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!
