Bill Mays' Essential Tunes - August 9, 2006

This is from my old site from a couple of years ago. I thought there might be some interest in this...

For several years, trumpet great Marvin Stamm and piano wizard Bill Mays have made an annual trek to HSPVA in which they basically spend a day performing and working with the jazz students. Their visits to the school always include wonderful performances, insightful music biz info, and overall great interaction with the students. Their latest visit to the campus on April 11th was no exception. One piece of advice Bill stressed to the students was the importance of learning tunes. I asked him if I might post his list of essential tunes that every aspiring jazz musician should know and, being the nice person that he is, he agreed. Please check out his website at billmays.net. Also, visit Marv’s website at marvinstamm.com.
