Desert City Jazz, Phoenix’s premier LGBT and friends jazz ensemble, has an opening for a pianist.
We play fun, challenging contemporary charts (Gordon Goodwin, Maynard Ferguson, Rob McConnell, etc.) plus some classic big band music (Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thad Jones, etc.) so you should be a good reader. Improvisational skill is highly desirable.
Look around this website to learn more about the band, and use the “Join the Band” tab to indicate your interest or ask questions.
You can help make Desert City Jazz even better in 2019!
The director and management team of Desert City Jazz are currently planning our 2019 season.
So that we may continue to improve and deliver a series of performances that you will enjoy, we invite you to take this brief survey. It’s only 9 questions (most of which are multiple choice) and should only take about 3 minutes. Your input is important to us and will help us move forward in the best way possible.
Desert City Jazz is a full-size, 18-piece jazz ensemble (5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, piano, bass, drums, percussion, vocalist) comprised of many of the best jazz musicians in the Phoenix area’s LGBT and Friends community. Our director is Michael Collier.
