Full time musicians forming serious jazz band/trio
You must be already familiar and have experience with this style (swing, standard , latin jazz ,samba etc )
and can also play untuned percussion: congas, bongoes, latin kit, cajon etc(to na me a few)
Repertoire mainly from the Fakebook, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitz, Jobim, Sergio Mendes, Celia Cruz, Sierra Maestra, Buena Vista Social Club, Tito Puentes , Fania All Stars- standard jazz and latin jazz
And anything that we can jazz up (Post Modern Jukebox for recent taste)
Open to learn new piece, and aim to get us to
score gigs and paying job. (shoot a video-get an agent/representative- work)
Would prefer mature musician, full time muscian, music graduates (tho its flexible really)
Manchester /Cheshire based and surrounding area.
Practices are on weekdays, so if you are weekend players , this probably not for you.
Not interested to chat on phone or whatever aimlessly , and would rather let the music speak by itself.
So ladies and gentlemen,please include your links/attachment of works/music ,
we will swap those things and see how it goes from there.
No music , no talk.
At this moment we don’t need any DIVA or any form of any negative attitude.
If you are humble (like most good musician and knowledgeable musician normally are) and can get along with/ and pleasant to work with, we would love to hear from you
