This year's issue took place on october 25 last. Contrary to our normal routine with only one or even no rehearsals at all, we decided to do 4 rehearsals so that we could transcend the "jam session level" a bit and add a few less heard standards like Pat Martino's "Lean Years", Freddie Hubbard's "Up Jumped Spring", "This I Dig", "Grooveyard" and even an original ballad by Herbie Guldenaar. This idea proved a lot more satisfactory. What just a few rehearsals can do ...
A nice feature of the jazz concerts jams at the Crow is that they are filmed so that people can follow the live stream via the internet. The quality of the image and sound is so so, but it kind of adds a nice flavor to the shows.
