Do you want to learn to play jazz? Come join the OLLI jazz band. This is an instrumental group for brass, saxophones and rhythm (drums, piano, guitar and bass). Other instruments may be considered. Contact the instructors/coordinators by visiting the class. Music from the swing era of the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s will be played. This class will emphasize learning to play jazz with opportunities for improvisation. At home practice is recommended to learn the charts. There will be one or two performances per semester.
