We love the Festival of Chichester.  Jazz Smugglers have become one of the famous FESTIVAL BANDS in SUSSEX. The JAZZ SMUGGLERS EVENTS are all different. Sometimes the music is full of Gershwin and Cole Porter. At other times we are playing songs loved by Jazz Club patrons.

We play mainly in CHICHESTER, WEST SUSSEX, which is close to BOGNOR for LIVE JAZZ, but we also work as a live JAZZ BAND in WORTHING, and as a JAZZ BAND in PORTSMOUTH,  There are not many JAZZ BANDS IN CHICHESTER, there are one or two live BANDS IN BOGNOR, more BANDS IN WORTHING and even more BANDS IN PORTSMOUTH.

There are many JAZZ BANDS IN EAST SUSSEX but far fewer JAZZ BANDS IN WEST SUSSEX. If you want soft romantic music for WEDDING RECEPTIONS SUSSEX. or a LIVE JAZZ TRIO at your WEDDING or PRIVATE PARTY as background music book us please.

If you insist on training yourself then
AEBERSOLD PRODUCTS will help you play better jazz

Jamey Aebersold is the world’s leading remote jazz trainer.  Big, big list of products for beginners to advanced – music, playalong tapes, tutorials, videos, books and arrangements. On his site is some free and very useful help for jazz players. He is the overwhelming market leader.  Aebersold website

Navigate to his Free Jazz section, then go to scale syllabus.  This is a complete guide to all the scales, all of them, with notes, intervals – it is the basic reference guide.  The slight problem is that all the chord symbols are from the USA and our symbols are often a bit different but they are not difficult to work out. Anyway the Aebersold site will help. Just go to nomenclatures on the free page and download it.

You should also get the Jazzwise free catalogue – they sell Aebersold products in the UK plus many more arrangements and tutorials.  It is Europe’s biggest jazz music site.  They bring Aebersold to the UK for a weekend training workshop every summer.
