Once again I was blessed to go to the camp and continue to learn how to play in a Trad Jazz Band.
Our Band this Year (back L/R) – Don Risser (Trumpet), Fran Ferrance (Trumpet), Terry Myers (Professor/leader), Richard Downey (Clarinet), Dave Graves (Trombone), & Gerry Turner (Bass) – (bottom L/R) – Jim Henderson (Drums), & Dave Stare (Banjo).
Nothing beats this experience to help increase one’s ability to improvise on the fly. Here are some pictures and a video of the professors modeling the art of playing with a team of musicians. Enjoy!!
Another picture with me in back.
