Small-group performance. Skills include improvisation, accompaniment, pacing, interaction, repertoire, and arrangements.
Audition requirements: Be prepared to play (and preferably bring a chart for) a medium or up-tempo bebop tune or standard. Interpret melody and demonstrate ability to improvise over the chord changes. Rhythm section players should also demonstrate instrument-appropriate accompaniment skills on the same tune (comping for guitar and piano, walking lines for bass, etc.). Jazz-relevant sight-reading will also be expected.
