Starting To Start A Band
I’m starting to start a jazz band. Starting a band can be difficult. You have a vision in you head but no one else can read your mind. So you try to explain it using words. Unfortunately, words are mostly inadequate when it comes to explaining music. And then, good musicians are usually busy. Fortunately I have met a lot of good musicians over the years, and they know good musicians also.
It is far easier to join a band than start one, but sometimes you have to take the lead. I am getting together with a drummer and bass player next week. A good rhythm section is key to any band. So if that “core” is working well together, I will be encouraged. Then I will start adding more members.
