Hi Everyone,

I just want to mention few things.

We have a Notes page dedicated to DJB where you can access previous messages and updated information about our sessions.  Jody Gomber, our band representative, will post some of my messages and important details whenever necessary.
The concert at the end of the program is scheduled for Sunday, December 16th. I will send details of time etc.. soon.

I will be making an effort to coordinate some clinics. As soon as I have figured out the logistics of the school and times I will advise.

Intermission snacks and drinks! Let’s make sure that everyone is contributing to the cost.

After our sessions at Nepean High School DJB members congregate at the Clocktower Pub on Richmond Road.
Everyone is invited to attend following our rehearsals. The more the merrier!

We are back at Nepean High School this week. Downbeat is at 7:00 pm. I look forward to seeing everyone

Here are the best recordings I could find. The others are out of print and do not exist in the modern era.

I have also included an updated version of the Blues scales. Shawn Ferrier (trombone) was kind enough to create and provide us with a PDF. (JG’s note: find it here at the DJB Dropbox page – you do not need to join Dropbox to access it)  I hope that the blues scale has been helpful and I am looking forward to having some volunteers try improvisation in Kansas City. It is on a voluntary basis only.
