If you’d like to listen to (or download) the Jazzed About Jazz concert, this link will get you there:  http://www.4shared.com/dir/9428336/6d681e66/Britt_Instrumental_Jazz_Camp_2009.html

 

The original recording was not broken down by tracks, so you need to listen through to find more specific tunes or combos — but it’s all there and it sounds really good!

 

Thank you to Jill Dillon for these photos from the Jazzed About Jazz Concert!

Before Kai played for Botti, he asked Joelle, "Should I think of this more like an important audition or a casual lesson?" To which Joelle replied, "Think of it as an important lesson."
