Here's a totally unsolicited testimonial for this camp.  I've been
playing "legit" tuba since 1959, and have dabbled in trad jazz over the
years.  I attended the San Diego Jazz Camp in January 2005, and I
learned more about playing trad jazz in four days that I'd learned in
the previous forty years.  

The classes are scheduled so that you spend mornings with an instructor
who's a professional on your instrument.  You spend mornings with other
players on your instrument, with your instructor.  Afternoons and
evenings are scheduled so that you're in a different 7-piece band every
two hours, with all bands working on the same ten tunes.

I recommend this camp to anyone who wants to become a better trad jazz
player. I'm already registered to attend again in January 2006.
