Jazz Band

Remembering Jim Beauchamp

C4A Jazz Band is for people who want to work on learning jazz standards, playing over chord changes, working up solos, and accompanying ideas. You should already know how to play your instrument, but you don’t have to know how to improvise–you will learn as you play in your band! 

Popular C-U bassist, Josh Houchin, will lead you in playing jazz from many eras: swing, bebop, post bop, cool, fusion, and wherever else your tastes turn! Participants are encouraged to bring in their own arrangements and compositions. This is a great opportunity to interact with other musicians in an ensemble setting.

Jazz Band is offered in a 12-week semester format, but you may join any time.  Come by yourself and join our existing group or get a group of friends together so you can practice together outside of class too!
