The place is full and there are not one but two people videotaping. I assume the guy at the microphone is Dave Sharp. He plays upright bass in his own bands and is also a member of the Joe Summers Gypsy Jazz Trio, but tonight he's wearing the hat of director of the blues and jazz program at the Ann Arbor Music Center, aka the Rock Band School. I spoke with him by phone earlier. He told me they'd be doing blues standards, and that his students play together for about two years before he brings them out to perform.
