You’re all in a band, that’s already been formed with certain agreements & parameters: You’re all fans of some sorts of rock & jazz to some degree or another, and you’ve concluded that, while there’s no room in your local music scene for another rock band, or another jazz band, the clubs are eager to showcase a jazz-rock hybrid (yes, this is fantasy).
You’ve formed this band with the express purpose of filling that niche; you’re all on the same page as far as that very vague musical goal.
You’ll play shows of all original material which is still in the works.
There will be lots of improv in each performance, as players are moved by the inspiration of the moment. This band thrives less on rehearsed precision and more on spontaneity.
Within that, there will be disagreements, good shows and bad shows. We’ll see what “rock” and “jazz” mean to each of you.
We’ll play to see if the characters can achieve their personal musical visions, and at the same time, if the band can stay together and forge a sound that will carry them forward.
