This CD brings you t jazz arrangements of some of Broadway’s greatest hits from the 20’s through the 50’s. Sit back, relax, and join the G.A.M.E.!!!!!
The “Great American Music Experience”, “G.A.M.E.” for short, is a jazz quartet that performs live concerts with a selected theme ( love songs, show tunes, the Latin beat, etc.) and weaves in information about music forms, rhythms, styles, the role of the instruments themselves, the history of a tune, the musical “conversation” you see as musicians play ….well, you get the idea.
G.A.M.E’s CD’s are just the music, without the audience interactions that happen at performances, but the liner notes give a preview of what you might hear at a show (hey, these are jazz musicians – they improvise.) The concerts, with audience participation, are great fun, and audience members get a much more intimate view of music making.
