I think everyone at today’s jam will agree it was a good one. Fourteen jammers is just about perfect: enough to fill out the session but not so many it’s hard to fit everyone in. And with a good mix of skill levels, less experienced players got to play with advanced players and be a part of some excellent music. We also had a larger audience turnout than usual and received positive and enthusiastic feedback. Just good feelings all the way around.
Our next session on October 19th features multi-instrumentalist and educator, Brad Carmen. He’ll be joined by the Rand Moore trio: Paul Muench – piano, John Schaffer – bass, and Rand on drums. The featured song is Tadd Dameron’s, Ladybird. We’ll have notes from Brad posted soon. For now, listen to Dexter and try to learn a few of his lines. He has so many ideas - find a few that resonate with you and try to work them into your own playing.
See you next time at the jam.
