Our next gathering will include featured tunes by two jazz giants. “Bessie’s Blues” is a Coltrane number, a straightforward blues with a nifty melody. We’ll also play “A Night in Tunisia,” Dizzy’s bop classic. This one mixes Latin and swing feels, gets us playing minor ii-V’s, and requires you to remember a sixteen bar interlude in the head. These should be fun! Both tunes are in Real Book I. The house band will include Paul Dietrich (tpt), John Mesoloras (bs), and John Lombardo (dr). We look forward to seeing and hearing you at North Street Cabaret on 8/19!
