Jam Room - Room #117

This hands-on D'jam will be geared towards intermediate to advanced players. The Trio Jazz Gitan plays songs from the Django Reinhardt/gypsy jazz repertoire, and attendees will be able to display their skills. The d'jam will be divided into two camps: rhythm and soloist. If there are any bassists wishing to participate, please sign in early. Players who know these tunes [shown below] will be invited to perform in a round style approach where everyone gets a chance to improvise. This is a no pressure, hands-on opportunity to play your heart out. Chord charts will be provided, but it is suggested participants bring a pencil and paper to take notes. All types of instrumentation are accepted, but be ready to play! This is hot gypsy jazz d'jam!

  1. Minor Swing [in A Minor]
