Description

Always wanted to tell the band what to play, in what style, and what tempo? This is your chance! “Jazz On Demand,” a program of the CNY Jazz arts-in-education service, performs a unique, audience-interactive show that reveals the framework of songs and demonstrates how improvising musicians rely on that to perform successfully with minimal or no written music on hand. Audiences are empowered to participate by echoing call-and-response figures, and by “ordering” the trio to perform specific titles in tempos and styles chosen by shuffling flash cards. The atmosphere is fun and friendly throughout this enjoyable, welcoming presentation.
