Please arrive at Flesher-Hinton Music Store by 6:30pm for our regular weekly rehearsal. We will conclude at 9pm, as usual. There will be 1 or 2 drummers auditioning on Sunday.
 
Please remember to bring your November dues on Sunday (except for Jake C, who is already paid). For planning purposes, the December dues will need to be turned in on December 8th.
 
TRANSCRIPTION ASSIGNMENT: Everyone is required to transcribe a solo from our professional recordings. We’ll continue to listen to all transcriptions this Sunday. Adam is doing “The Mooche,” Jake C is transcribing “Saints,” Jake W is doing “Bourbon Street,” or something else,  Andrew is transcribing “Bill Bailey,” Josh is doing “After You’ve Gone,” and Trevor is transcribing “Washington and Lee Swing.” Copland has already completed and performed his transcription.
 
Please be sure the dominant 7th plus nine & pg. 17 in Bill’s Improv Book are prepared. 
 
We’ll also review At the Jazz Band Ball, Black Bottom Stomp, and the intro to Royal Garden Blues.

Please be sure and also prepare: The Mooche, New Orleans Stomp, Marchand De Poissons, After You’ve Gone, Wolverine Blues, Big Butter and Egg Man, Blue Skies, I’ve Found a New Baby, Red Wing, Just a Closer Walk With Thee, Down By the Riverside, Bill Bailey, and All of Me.
