The Asheville Jazz Orchestra is going to be busy for the next month, so if you’re around western North Carolina you’ll get plenty of chances to come out and hear us play. Tomorrow, Saturday November 26, 2011, the AJO is back out at the White Horse Black Mountain for two sets of big band jazz. The show starts at 8 PM.
We should have a special guest sitting in with us, trombonist Adam Dotson. Adam is best known for his work with a rock band called Rubblebucket. His father, Woody Dotson, plays trumpet with the AJO. There are a couple of charts in our book with 5 trombones that I can use to keep everyone up on the stand, but I’m looking forward to letting someone else play for me for a bit. Then I can step out front and listen to how the band sounds from the audience and maybe fix some balance issue. I’ll also be able to sit with my fiance for a bit. She comes to a lot of my shows by herself, so it will be nice for her to have some company on a couple of tunes this time.
If you’re in Black Mountain, NC tomorrow night please stop on by and check out the AJO. Be sure to say hello while you’re there.
