This ensemble is by audition. Typical instrumentation includes 5 saxophones, 4-5 trumpets, 4-5 trombones, 1-2 piano, 1-2 guitar, 1-2 bass, and 1-3 drums. Please contact Mrs. Palmer for an audition. You will be asked to play a couple major scales, a swing etude, and to improvise over a blues progression. A great resource for practice is Jamey Aebersold Blues in all Keys. There are some swing etude books, such as one by Lennie Niehaus, etc. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further information.
