The repertoire will include Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Jack Teagarden and Jelly Roll Morton and the material closely associated with this style and the emerging influence of the Chicago school and it's proponents. We'll work on developing a cohesive polyphonic approach to collective improvisation. Open to musicians of intermediate to advanced ability. Willingness to solo and stretch out. We need a frontline of trumpet, clarinet, saxophone and trombone and a backline of piano, tuba (or bass), banjo or guitar and drums.
