Reading Session One!

I’m happy to announce that I’ve arranged for several friends to get together and read through some of the music that I bought at the International Society of Bassists Convention in June of 2011.

It’s one thing to buy a bunch of music, it’s another to find out if any of it is any good. Especially in a small space like this, it’s hard to be sure. The fact that something is published is no guarantee, since it is so easy to self-publish these days.

This read-through will also help me line up some of the music that we’ll play in the coming season. I haven’t released details, but we will be playing in Arlington Heights in January, and I also hope that we’ll be on the program at next year’s Chicago Bass Festival.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting together with John Tuck, Beth Zaluba and Anton Hatwich on Monday (yep, tomorrow, as I’m posting this) to try some stuff out. This afternoon’s project: pick what music to read.
