FOR PRESCREEN VIDEOS
Record yourself playing and improvising on two contrasting pieces: a blues or jazz standard as well as a second piece of your choice (another standard, original or jazz composition). We prefer that the two submissions include one or more musicians playing with you live. If that is not possible, play-along accompaniment is allowed. We welcome additional materials, including recordings of original music, and music you have produced.
The following roles are available:
2-week rehearsal in NYC
4-5 month contracts at sea
Rehearsal pay $775/week
