As part of our jazz appreciation month celebration, we’re excited to share our third video of a three-part series from Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band. This month members of the band share tips on what to do when your live performance take an unexpected (and sub-optimal) turn.
When It Goes Off the Rails
What should the rhythm section do when the entire horn section comes in two and a half beats early after the solo section? While this feels like a setup for a joke, the guys in the band have some real-life suggestions for you.
Appearing in this video are:
- Kevin Axt (bass) and Ray Brinker (drums)
- Sal Lozano (sax) and Eric Marienthal (sax)
- Andy Martin (trombone) and Wayne Bergeron (trumpet)
