On Tuesday October 16, CMC launched a new jams series at Bissap Baobab just around the corner from the CMC Mission Branch. Led by Eduardo Corzo with Miguel Govea, CMC students from the Charanga Ensemble, Teen Jazz Orchestra, Latin Vocal Workshop, and Jazz Ensembles participated along with other CMC faculty and staff.
The Tuesday night jam focused on Latin music with pieces that included Sabor a Mi, Philly Mambo, Blue Bossa, El Cuarto de Tula, Girl from Ipanema, Autumn Leaves, Footprints, Wave, Obsesion and more.
CMC Jams continue monthly the first and third Tuesday of the month alternating with jazz music jams led by Charlie Gurke on the first Tuesday and Latin music jams led by Eduardo Corzo on the third Tuesday.
CMC Program Director Sylvia Sherman who attended the jam had great things to say about the session, “Bissap Baobab is a fun place to gather—with great food and drink. We were happy to see folks from the neighborhood. We welcome musicians to sit in and audience members to come listen. Bring your instrument!”
The next jam is Tuesday, November 6, led by CMC Jazz Ensemble Director Charlie Gurke.
