We are in the process of updating our website, so please submit a paragraph of bio. info that I can post on the website about you. Please check out the postings that are already up there to give you some ideas on how to write your paragraph. Please email those to me as soon as possible. I’ve only received bios from Rico, Ben and Cameron so far!

Practice your pentatonics around the circle of fourths. Also, your major triads plus six around the circle of fourths, on page 6. We’ll continue working on the half step exercises on pg. 9 as well. Please also prepare pg. 14.

We will choose and rehearse all selections for the October 11th Metro State College Radio Show Day Performance and the October 16th Denver Jazz Club Monthly Session. Plan on performing all the selections we performed at the Boulder Friends of Jazz last Sunday. Please prepare all of the tunes and be sure they are completely memorized by Sunday. The set order sheets can be found on the Downloads page.
