Wanted: Jazz pianist & sax for quintet/sextet



My name's Akiva, and I'm putting together a jazz quintet/sextet looking to gig semi-regularly for the hell of playing some kick-ass music.  I'm into many styles, so plan on playing swing/bossa novas/sambas/waltzes/funk/disco/blues/gospel tunes.  i've already got a kick-ass drummer and guitarist on board, and i think a bassist, so i'm looking for some keys and a sax to fill the group out (I play trumpet).  planning on rehearsals once a week until we have a solid book of 20 tunes locked in, and relaxing the rehearsal schedule from there (i'm busy with a real job, as are other group members, so rehearsals will be focused on tightening up tunes and developing new ones, not random jams that don't improve the group dynamic).  ideally, we'll be gigging once a week around western suffolk/easter nassau county.  There ain't a lot of money in jazz on the island, so i'm not running this group for any loot, but rather to put a kick ass group together to play our asses off.  if we get some nice society gigs thrown our way, we'll take them if we can do it, but i'd rather be in a group that plays the music i like then get stucking playing rehash for a couple bucks every week.  i encourage all members to bring tunes they want to play to the group, but you gotta put the arrangements together, and i encourage writing originals for the group.  contact me at aa_sklar77@yahoo.com for more info if you're interested.
