Congratulations on our best performance yet – at Monday’s Avo’s Jazz Fest!
On Sunday, please arrive at Flesher-Hinton by 6:30pm for our rehearsal.
Please remember to bring your listening CD’s to rehearsal on Sunday.

Please be prepared to play all your major scales and 6th’s  around the circle of fourths. We’ll also do pp. 6 – 15 in the improv book . Please practice so you can do the scales from memory. 
Please practice and prepare our newer tunes for Sunday- New Orleans Stomp, That’s a Plenty, and Ice Cream.

We’ll need to select our 3 tunes for the Club performance on the 16th, and make sure we have 22 songs ready for the 23rd performance in Evergreen.
The set order and reference recordings can be found on the Downloads page
