"Golden Rules for Ensemble Playing"

    1. Everyone should play the same piece.
    2. Carefully attempt to tune your instrument before playing. That way you can be out of tune all night with a clear concience.
    3. Take your time finding each chart and turning pages.
    4. Keep the fingering chart handy. You can always catch up with the others.
    5. If you play a wrong note or passage, give a nasty look to someone near you. Or else, play it a few times and it will sound like jazz.
    6. Always remember, the right note at the wrong time is a wrong note, and vice-versa.
    7. If a passage is difficult, slow down. If it is easy, speed up. Everything will even itself out in the end.
    8. When everyone else has finished playing, you should not play any notes you have left.
    9. Strive to get the maximum NPS (notes per second). This will intimidate the weaker players and gain you the admiration of the ignorant. Audience at the club will be impressed.
    10. If everyone gets lost except you, follow the ones who are lost
    11. If you are completely lost, stop everyone and say, "I think we should tune up".
    12. Markings for slurs, dynamics and expression should be disregarded. They are only to embellish the score and make the arranger look good.
    13. Observe the repeat signs only if what you just played was interesting.
    14. If the ensemble has to stop because of you, carefully explain in detail why you got lost. Everyone will be very interested.
    15. A wrong note played timidly is a wrong note.
    16. A wrong note, played with authority, is simply your interpretation of the phrase.
    17. You have achieved a true jazz interpretation when, in the end, you have not played one note of the original chart.
