Please bring your September dues (except Rebecca and Alex who are already prepaid). These dues will carry us through 4 weekly sessions.

Please remember to bring your listening CD’s to Sunday’s rehearsal.

Rebecca, please remember to bring the borrowed pair of slacks back on the 18th.

Please get started on your transcription solo project. I’ll ask you what tune you’ve selected to do, and anyone who has completed the project is welcome to perform their solo for us.

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.

The photo session will be on Sunday, October 9th at Bart’s photography studio (at Arapahoe and Emporia, near the Shane Company in Centennial). We’ll wear our blue shirts and new khaki slacks.

Practice your pentatonics around the circle of fourths. Also, your major triads plus six around the circle of fourths, on page 6. We’ll try and start working on the half step exercises on pg. 9 as well.

We will rehearse all 8 selections for the October 2nd Summit Jazz Festival and Boulder Friends of Jazz performances. Please prepare all of the tunes and memorize them. The set order sheets can be found on the Downloads page.

Remember we will be auditioning for stage announcers on the 18th, so be prepared!
