Wow, some great choices there. I also like Key to the Highway. Can't Get Next to You is a great one. Blue Bossa usually works in any crowd once people know the changes-- I wonder if that is the tune you were refering to.

 

I often use "framents" for jamming, like the first 8 bars of Theme to an Imaginary Western by Mountain are nice but not everyone knows the whole tune, so I just build off the first 8 bars and if things work out then maybe consider if people want to actually learn it. Same with Living for the City by Stevie Wonder, I like the 12 bar part which is like a 2 bar riff played four times (getting us 8 bars into the tune) with the IV-V for bars 9 and 10 and the riff again. I skip the 3/4 part unless people know it.

 

Hurricane is a great jamming tune.

check out some comedy I've done:

me? no, I love the whole genre. I have a tape of `Jazz from Holland` from NPR-there`s a group called Bacan or Bakan-something like that. I`ve been jamming to it lately, the lead singer is from Brazil and also plays the piano. Gad these guys are good, I think the guitarist is a conservatory graduate. Gotta get around to looking them up on the net.

That`s a cool idea about song frgaments-I really like the way Steely Dan`s `King of the World` rides out.
