I have a band that plays my original jazz tunes. We're about to record a CD. We're great! The summer is looking pretty good.
I've basically left all the Bb gigs behind me. I did it long enough.
The ride cymbal is everything. I've been through every damn way there is to play it, and I'm just starting to play it like ME. An amazing intrument, the ride cymbal. So deep!
Jazz is cool in the way that it keeps you going, keeps you questioning and learning.
I've never been what you would call a joiner, but, okay. I'll gladly and proudly join this little club.
Only one thing: does it serve alcohol? And can you smoke?
LOL - The one and only rule is it's minimum age requirement.
Max Roach did it, Elvin Jones did it, but Roy Haynes didit and didit and didit.
