C Jam Blues
This is one of the three Duke Ellington selections that the River East Collegiate Senior Jazz Band played at the 12th Annual Essentially Ellington Competition and Festival in New York City. This is actually the only selection in which Reggie played.
The first soloist is the piano player on your left end, then Reggie playing the flute on the opposite end, then the French horn, and so on.
Here’s C Jam Blues.
The group just came back from New York last night. Yay! They didn’t win. It looks like their competition was very tough. But that’s okay. We think that they’re already winners just by making it to the final 15 in this prestigious jazz festival and also having the chance to jam with the musicians at the Lincoln Center.
