Our video of Nat Adderley's "Work Song" the video also features some great shots of Montreal and a very unique view of the House of Jazz. The video came to us in a very unusual way.

Ever hear this one?

An Irish TV producer walks into a bar…
Well one did. He was doing some shooting in Montreal and happened into the House of Jazz. He loved our band and shot some video of Deep Blue and the club. He returned a few days later and gave us this video on a key.

We'll be at the House of Jazz this Monday, 7:30-11 PM and we'll play "Work Song" and a bunch of other good stuff. Come on down and join us!

Saxophone and Jazz Lessons in Montreal by Johnny Beaudine

Jazz improvisation and Saxophone lessons given by Chicago blues and jazz veteran. 
For the last year or so I've been teaching saxophone and Jazz. I'm happy to say I enjoy teaching and the satisfaction it brings from seeing my students improve.
Here's the text for my teaching ad.
Learn to play sax and improvise jazz and blues from a working professional. If you can already play clarinet, trumpet or flute I can teach you to improvise. 
Learn to Improvise – My students follow a proven method to learn to master the saxophone or other brass and reed instruments  and train the ear and the mind to hear and improvise jazz and blues solos. 
I learned jazz/blues/R&B in Chicago’s Legendary South Side Blues clubs and I’ll give you a deeper understanding of the jazz and blues tradition. 
Beginner - Intermediate - Advanced, adult students welcome.  Located in the Plateau or, I can come to you.
