The live performance I had the pleasure of attending was the Falcon Jazz Band. It was Jazz concert on Nov. 26 2008, at 12.00 pm. These was the first jazz concert I have ever attended I wasn’t sure what to expect at the end I was glad I went. The instruments used were saxophone, trombone, tuba, trumpet, piano, drum set, guitar and bass guitar.

The brass section were seating in three rolls the position of the front line, first seated was four young men playing saxophone some played tenor sax and alto sax, second roll were five men of four played trombone, and one played tuba. The last roll standing was the trumpet players. Rhythm section comprises of a guitarist, a pianist, a drummer and a music director. The first song titled “Color Me Warm”, Carlos the guitarist started playing solo, and another solo by Alex playing trombone which he later in the third song switched to playing tuba then the whole trombone roll came in improvising more like in a call and response manner, followed by the trumpet roll with a high pitch while piano, drums and guitar were played softly. On the second song titled “Like Someone in Love” one of my classmate Daniel Rodriguez joined the trumpet line, he played solo the reaction of the audience were ecstatic they started clapping, he played very good, I was impressed, later Derrick Newbold alto saxophonist got up and joined him, followed by the trombone line then every performer joined playing slowly. The next song “Cherokee” had a fast tempo, complex melodies more energetic even the music director was into it. There were lots improvisations, tenor sax Amauri Samtalia and alto sax Derrick Newbold both got up and played with
