I schedule the jam in 4 month blocks and our next jam starts a new block. Over the last 4 months we featured songs by Herbie Hancock and Thelonius Monk. I hope you like the idea of  working on songs by select composers because the next 4 months we’ll feature songs by George Gershwin and Horace Silver. It was hard to choose from the many great songs they composed – I hope you like the songs we picked. The updated list is now on the schedule page. Band members for each session are also listed.

“Senor Blues” is the song for our next jam on September 4th. As always it is best to learn from a recording. It is also in one of the Real Books and a cool transcription including the piano line and horn harmonies can be found here.
