ABOUT

I am guitar player/arranger/composer that is currently forming a new Jazz, Latin & Brazilian Jazz, Funk Arrangements Workshop. I am looking for Intermediate/Advanced musicians who can sight read, improvise and have experience playing in a written music setting. I need musicians for the following instruments:
piano, bass, drums, 2 trumpets, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, trombone.

Unlike many other pay-to play ensembles, the repertoire of this workshop is unique and will challenge musicians across a variety of musical styles. In addition, the cost is low ($20 per session) and required to cover rehearsal related expenses.

My reason for creating this workshop is to provide a forum for me and other like-minded musicians to play a unique, diversified repertoire that would inspire and challenge all participants. The music had to be good and distinctive enough to compel musicians to put in the time and effort to professionally execute and interpret this challenging material.

Influences

The arrangements we will play in the workshop will be across a variety of styles including Jazz, Brazilian Jazz, Latin Jazz, and Funk. I currently have transcribed arrangements for music from Roy Hargrove, Bobby Paunetto, Mongo Santamaría and Cold Blood as well as some of my original tunes. I have attached under the tab "Music" several of original recorded versions of the tunes I have arranged as well as 3 mp3s of my original material.

Members Of Band

I have recruited a couple of musicians from my current musical network that are interested in participating. However, I am looking for additional musicians for all listed instruments.

EQUIPMENT

I will be booking a rehearsal studio probably in NYC depending on where the participating musicians live. I would also considering a studio in the Bronx or lower Westchester County.
