    Drop a line here or via PM if you'd like to call a tune in the next few weeks.

    DO NOT tell me the tune ahead of time though, I like being surprised!

    I'm going to try and make a "summer calendar" to keep this little exercise going.

    Hi Jeff. Great series of threads and I have learned a lot in the last couple of weeks because of it. So I thought it may be time for me to call one and I think I have a good one in mind...

    Looks like I was a bit slow - just realized that you meant for me to call the next one?

    Yes - by what time (Chicago time) do you need to know the tune I've chosen? I'm 7 hours in advance here....

    By say, 8pm your time, on Thursday should do it.

    Any other takers?

    I suggest playing with the same good backg track.
    Everyone who plays with their own background chooses what suits them.
    Make jam a challenge.
    Good Luck

    I’d be happy to follow Ronstuff mid-July. Finishing up a brief hiatus this week, but should be back in the saddle next week.

    Just to be a nit-picking pedant here for a moment (you know I enjoy it really) but On The Trail is by Ferde Grofe, from his Grand Canyon Suite. Somehow the tune was adopted by jazz musicians.

    Ferde Grofe - Wikipedia

    Clark Terry talks about it and plays it at 16:15 here, Kenny Burrell is also featured (he was on the Jimmy Heath recording too):

    You should call one of those, on July 23rd. That's the day after my birthday, and I'd consider any one of these tunes a nice gift (Just did voyage for jotw, GREAT TUNE)

    FWIW I’d like to see the tunes come out earlier in the day. It’s purely selfish because my shed time is everyday at 12pm EST, and I usually have to wait till Friday to get started.
