Hey, guys. I'm a long-time sideman (mostly jazz), first-time bandleader. I was wondering how you guys would go about rehearsing a band like this: we're a 6 piece Funk, Soul, R&B Band that is Vox, Bass, Guitar, Keys, T. Sax, Drums (for now until we get established, then we add a 3/4 horn section & aux perc). Most of the guys are university-trained. We're playing all covers such as "Sir Duke", "September", "Virtual Insanity", etc. How should I go about getting these guys to learn the tunes? Should I just give them mix discs with the repertoire and say "Hey, learn ____, ____, and ____ for next week"? Would that be better than transcribing all the charts? Or, is there a good fake book out there that would have a large fraction of our set list? What do you guys think? Basically, I've only played in groups that was either loosely improvised or with mostly written out parts. So, I'm not sure how to go about this.
