Day Two...

Started Jazz II today... Good Stuff. Despite being handed a slightly leaky Selmer USA (R) tenor with a dingy stock mouthpiece, things looked promising. We warmed up with some scales and good old "C Jam Blues." We then played a tune called "Moten Swing." Then Dr. C handed us what was probably Chuck Mangione's most famous tune - "Feels so Good", a tasty rock samba 70's jazz tune. Tomorrow brings the infamous studio forum and hopefully a Selmer Series III (which I was promised) to "play some mean jazz on." Concert Band went okay with a new tune handed out, bari sax. gets old kind of easily though when the music isn't challenging. All in all, a good day. With this post, I leave everyone with a website to visit... here
