On Monday October 14, Reggie Thomas and Rick Haydon helped Jazz I get a little deeper into their music. The night began with our regular warm up that led to a mini-jam session with both guests on "Blues in the Closet" complete with student solos, riffed background and solos by our guest artists - beginning the evening with spontaneous conversations in music - doesn't quite get better than that!
Then professor Haydon took out guitarists to the "woodshed" and worked with them for an hour and a half while professor Thomas worked on getting the band to play with more intent and purpose. He was able to bring quite a bit out of the band and helped make the music more conversational. They both look forward to returning in February for our jazz festival to hear how we have grown!
