This ensemble will focus on performance by students of concepts from the Rhythmic Analysis level 2A and 2B classes, in a practical playing context. We will work on playing rhythmic superimpositions, metric modulations, odd meters, changing meters, and cross-rhythms on our instruments, using original music by the instructor and ensemble members, as well as blues, standards, and originals by other jazz composers, where appropriate. Improvisation in solos, accompaniment, and ensemble work will all be used to further mastery.
