  1. High School and College
    Hey guys! I'm a student combo leader for my high school jazz combo. We wanted to start performing and we're hoping to start maybe sometime in December at some retirement homes. I was wondering when would be a good time to start contacting the retirement homes? Also is it best to ask by phone or...
  2. The Band
    Hey guys! So I am a combo leader at my high school jazz combo. We play pretty well together as we have everything worked out. Our soloing is pretty good and the rhythm section is pretty locked in. I was wondering what can I do to really improve my combo. I understand that it is kind of hard for...
  3. The Band
    Hey guys so I shave sort of an issue... I run a high school jazz combo as the student leader and there was one kid who I said could join in today. He asked if he could watch us and naturally I just offered if he would instead like to sit in, but I think I gave the wrong message. I just offered...

  7. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Hi folks I'm after some digital format jazz combo arrangements - just like the Hal Leonard Jazz Combo Pak series. Need them in a hurry for a gig early next week, and realised our current Jazz Combo Paks have missing bass and drum parts... Anyone know of anything suitable? Happy to pay! TIA
  8. Jazz and Improvisation
    When playing in a combo group, how do you prefer/ expect people to play? Do you expect them to use music stands, or to play by memory? I usually use music when playing, but I'm now looking to join a regular combo group, and am considering kicking the habit. If you memorize, do you have any tips...
