We have such a great time playing together that we thought we would bring that experience to everyone, so have created a play along with Onyx Brass track. Its a modified version of our Jackdaws Project, C Jam Blues, by Duke Ellington, arranged by Tim Jackson. Its suitable for all players, especially beginners and includes an improvisation section if you are feeling a little bit funky!
Some special hints and tips, while you play, listen to Niall (trumpet) and Amos (trombone), they are almost always playing your parts. To get that special jazz swing rhythm, think of the words “Du Dat”, and in the solo improvisation section anything goes! The chords will be on screen and on your music as a guide should you wish to play a true blues solo, but don’t worry, there are no wrong notes in improvisation! Take a look at our version above with Amos taking the solo. Or follow this link to see Andy show that improvisation isn’t just for jazzers!
Have fun, and lets us know what you think using the hashtag #CJamwithOnyx
Here are the links to where you can find everything. Each link will open in a new window and will have the key specific video and two versions of the music available to download.
