Jazz Three Ensemble

This ensemble explores a wide variety of jazz performance pieces from the 1960’s to the present.  Some artists include:  Wes Montgomery, Michael Brecker, the Crusaders, and Miles Davis.  The instrumentation of the group defines the material and recently we have worked as a quintet with alto sax, trombone, guitar, bass, and drums.  It is important to be able to read chord changes, to improvise, and to contribute ideas to our arrangements.

Audition requirements:

1.) Learn “Autumn Leaves” —  a jazz standard.

2.) Learn “Cantaloupe Island” by Herbie Hancock

3.) Be ready to improvise!
