What Did You Miss This Week? (Week 541 #586)

Joe's away touring Europe, so we workshopped Don't Get Around Much Anymore in class since a few people are working on it.

Thanks to Walter Horton for giving harp players entree to this Duke Ellington classic!

Class Notes

  • Joe's away but Grant is teaching the Level III and Performance classes. Privates and Rhythm & Chording are not meeting.
  • Time to re-register! This session ends next week, so be sure to sign up for the next one soon. 

Logan Center Bluesfest
Matthew Skoller stopped by last night to hip us to this harp-friendly blues fest this weekend which ends with a Chicago Blues Harmonic Summit featuring Charlie Musselwhite, Billy Branch and Skoller.
