Looking for musicians interested in smooth jazz, or similar styles, funky grooves, etc, with the goal of forming an instrumental trio or quartet, some combination of guitar, bass, horn, clarinet, percussion, possibly keys.
Alternatively, looking for another guitarist interested in playing smooth jazz as a duo or trio with a bassist.
I am familiar with chording, and some basic jazz progressions, but this is a new musical direction for me. I am not a lifelong jazz player.
Original smooth groove compositions, familiar classic rock, soul, R&B numbers arranged smooth jazz style. Possibly covers of existing smooth jazz pieces.
My vision is to have two sets of "atmospheric" smooth jazz. Lower volume, accessible, familiar-feeling music to create sonic ambience for mature listeners: restaurants, happy hours, quiet private parties, etc.
Try to perfect a small, space-saving foot-print with basic equipment for quick set-up and break-down.
