So, I'm going to have an audition to jazz band which plays on a cruise ship. My question is about your experiences with such auditions? Maybe you have some examples of music sheet and backing tracks? Any tips?

Have they not given your any more details about what they want? Seems a little strange. If you're auditioning to play in a jazz band, they probably want to see you can sight read, you're comfortable playing chords and you can improvise.

I would have a solo piece prepared as well. Showing you can play some cocktail jazz piano will definitely go down well on a cruise ship smile
