CJC SUMMER SCHOLARSHIP SWEEPSTAKES kicks off March 3

JOIN UNI'S CHRIS MERZ TO KICK OFF 

THE CJC SUMMER SCHOLARSHIP SWEEPSTAKES 

AT THE MARCH 3 JAM SESSION

 

Once again, CJC is pleased to offer a $400 and a $100 scholarship to the Iowa summer jazz program (or lessons) of your choice.

And once again, we're pleased to have UNI Jazz Director/alto saxophonist Chris Merz on hand to start it off in March.

 

Only those students who attend the March, April, May and June jam sessions will be eligible for the drawing which will be held at the June session.

 

Chris Merz will join us at 1 p.m. to tell you more about UNI's summer program and conduct a one hour workshop (FREE) at Java Joe's.

The jam session itself will begin at its normal time, 2 – 4 p.m.

 

Chris has selected the following songs for the March 3 session:

 

For Beginners:  Sonnymoon for Two  |  Bags' Groove  |  Mr. PC  |  Watermelon Man  |  Equinox  |  Blues in the Closet

For Intermediate Players:  Cantaloupe Island  |  Autumn Leaves  |  Song for my Father  |  Doxy  |  Little Sunflower  |  St. Thomas  |  Lester Leaps In

For Advanced Players:  Lady Bird  |  All the Things You Are  |  Pent Up House  |  Recordamé  |  How High the Moon  |  Tune Up

 

Because we usually get more players coming for these sessions and because we want to maximize your opportunity to learn from Chris, 

please let me know which tunes you would like to play on (first-come, first-serve).  

 

As always, I would be happy to send you the music in advance. Also, I would be happy to send you a CD of those tunes recorded by some jazz greats.  Just ask.

 

See you on March 3 at Java Joe's.
