Dave Douglas Jazz Workshop
Dave Douglas Jazz Workshop: Three sessions in small ensemble playing and writing.
Deepen your compositional understanding and make new musical connections at these semi-private sessions in small ensemble playing and writing.
Three Sundays, Feb 24, Mar 17, Apr 21 from 3pm to 6pm the Dave Douglas Jazz Workshop will meet at ShapeShifter Lab in Brooklyn. Sign up will be through Dave’s label, Greenleaf Music, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The sessions will be limited to a small handful of players. We will be reading through and playing the sextet music from the albums In Our Lifetime, Stargazer, and Soul on Soul. Once you have signed up and been accepted you will receive PDF versions of your part so you can look at it in advance.
The cost will be $50 per session. All those who enroll for three sessions will get a free copy of the Dave Douglas Sextet book and possible invitation to perform in the Workshop concert on May 30 on a bill with the Dave Douglas Quintet.
All instruments are welcome. Trumpet, tenor saxophone/clarinet, trombone, piano, bass, and drums are encouraged. The workshops are also available for auditors and those who would like to listen in.
Spread the word and contact us to join in.
