What we do

This group covers the entire range of jazz styles, from New Orleans up to the present time. To get the group started, Dave will present the first three sessions. Hopefully others will subsequently present their own topics. We will start out at Dave's home. If numbers get too big, we will move to a more roomy venue. Initially, I will limit numbers to 12 (that's how many chairs I can muster!). Contact the coordinator in advance to book a place - first come first served.
