What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 531 #575)

Great performances! It was a full couple of hours in B1 last night, so learning and discussion was tailored to each person's playing. Big kudos to Ginny for taking a second pass at her tune and knocking it out of the park!

Class Notes

  • No class next week - Memorial Day holiday.
  • The private lesson renewal period is open now.
  • No Joe on June 4 - Grant will cover Level III classes and the Performance class in his absence. Be ready to tell him what you're most focused on.

Eddie Shaw Tribute

Brass In the Blues

Fri, May 25, 8pm
Logan Center, Performance Penthouse
915 E 60th St / FREE events

Join Rodney Brown, Michael Peavy, Bill McFarland, and Hank Ford of the Chicago Horns in a tribute to the great Chicago blues saxophonist, Eddie Shaw, who passed away in January 2018. The tribute will include members of Howlin’ Wolf’s legendary Wolf Gang, of which Shaw was bandleader and a long-time member. Guitarist and Wolf Gang member Eddie “Vann” Shaw Jr. will also be in attendance to celebrate the life and legacy of his father.

It will be a night of music and conversation in honor of Shaw’s unique style and illustrious career, and in recognition of the role brass played in the rich history of the blues.
