Jazz Jam #41

For maximum enjoyment of all, there will be Instrument Limits so that we can have 3 Ensembles playing 3 sets of 2 Tunes:

Piano - 3 (Bring a Keyboard and the limit is OFF!)

Vocals - 3

Guitar - 6

Horns/Wind - 6

Drums - 1 (In Addition to House Drummer)

Bass - 2 (In addition to House Bassist)

Everyone else can come anyway to watch and support the others. There is no limit to being in the audience!


Show up and have some fun!

The routine: Sign up for Jams on the sheet and we'll call everyone by ensemble group.

Each group gets to play 2 tunes in a Set. Please discuss intro/endings/tempo/style ahead of time to avoid restarts.

Vocalists get to sing one tune per set. Always bring music in your key (bring at least 5 leadsheets). Although note that horns may need to transpose so complex arrangements may not work.

Other than that, the group decides what to play (well, hopefully it's Jazz). And if you call a tune, better know how to play the head :)

All levels welcome.

To improve your experience, if you're new, just watch first so you understand the interaction. Maybe you don't sit in till the next jam. There's a list of common tunes up top. A little preparation on some frequently called tunes will save the day.

    Listened to my recordings of Waltz Debbie and Invitation just now.
    Debbie was too fast and Invitation sounded passable on the recording and not too good live??? Fun night. More Bass Players, PLEASE.
