     Description: Welcome to your jazz audition with "An Amazing Jazz Audition." Remember on the intro to play extremely legato and to make a contrast with the Latin-jazz section. Also, the drum auditions are the exact same audition throughout all jazz audition materials, so listen to the different examples and embellishments by Jazz Drummer Paul Parker to really get a grasp on the expectations of the drum audition. Remember, the style sheets for drums are the main audition, the actual tune itself is for call-backs only. Please learn both.
