The Columbus Community Jazz Band is the chance for anyone who has played an instrument to get back in the swing of things! Led by some of Columbus’ finest musicians, the CCJB performs jazz classics in a fun and engaging environment. Additionally, you’ll have the chance to meet and jam at the Jazz Academy an hour before rehearsal, record and perform during each season!
This season, Zach Compston leads a Latin Jazz edition of the Columbus Community Jazz band, exploring the music of Tito Puente, Poncho Sanchez, Mongo Santamaria and more.
For all wind instruments, guitar, piano, bass and percussion. Only basic experience on your instrument is required; we will be exploring written charts and improvisation as we learn to feel the rhythm of this infectious music!
