Oleo - Getting ready for auditions

Hi Everyone!

I am pleased to say I have graduated. No more school :). Anyway, I am getting ready for auditions at the WAAPA, Monash and Sydney. They start next week. PLenty of travel ahead.

Anyway, I thought I would post a clip of me playing Oleo solo. It's must me and a tiny bit of reverb. Apologies for the slightly wonky timing. I don't play alone that much. (Probably should) :twisted:

Any advice ahead of auditions would be appreciated!

Anyway, enjoy the clip (I hope). Here is the link to my Soundclick. Oleo - 2011

Advice: listen to a stack of early Rollins and steal a load of it. Play a lot with a metronome (esp good for rhythm changes i think).

Do you think what is required for the audition is "safe" or "creative"? That solo sounded on the safe side, pretty traditional swinginess.

You do realise of course that you play much better than I do so take the above with a pinch of salt.
