Bostonsop's picture

Hi! New professional vocal jazz sextet forming in Boston this summer in need of a baritone and a bass to complete our ensemble! We are graduates/current students from the New England Conservatory and have been a part of a self-directed quartet for the past two years. Now that some of us have graduated, we're looking to take the group to the next level and expand to a sextet. Please check out recordings at: www.myspace.com/necvocaljazzquartet.

The ensemble will be based heavily on the performance of our own arrangements and compositions at jazz venues in the New England area, as well as community outreach performances.

We are looking for people with great attitudes, willingness to rehearse regularly and work hard, excellent intonnation, good sight-reading skills, good time feel, ensemble singing experience, and a commitment to the group for at least a year. Skills and experience in jazz, improvisation, composition, arranging, and vocal percussion are a huge plus, but not required. Bass MUST be able to walk a bass-line.

If interested, please send information about yourself along with a head shot, bio, recording, and website or myspace link (if you have one) to: aubrey.kay.johnson@gmail.com.

We are so excited about this ensemble and can't wait to hear from you! FYI: I have already booked a date for the ensemble at Sculler's Jazz Club for February and have free studio/mixing/producing time set up with a Boston-based recording engineer. Let's make this happen!
