4 Sundays, Feb. 25, Mar. 3, 10, and 17: 11 am–2 pm
For four consecutive Sundays, women Jazzschool faculty will lead two simultaneous ensemble jams. Each ensemble will have one drummer, one bassist, one pianist, one guitarist, up to four horns or single-note instruments, and up to three vocalists. Music will include jazz, blues, R&B, and Latin standards. Instructors will begin by analyzing the material and making soloing suggestions.
Jams are open to all women at the intermediate to advanced level, with some experience negotiating major, minor, and dominant 7th chords.
Some tunes will be chosen ahead of time from the Real Book Sixth Edition, and others will be sight-read at the jams. Musicians can sign up for any or all the dates, and we will attempt to include all interested musicians until spots are full.

PRICE: $50 per session
