Wow, this jazz bar is really great. There are so many hot chicks here!

Agh, try to be a little more serious. We came to listen to music. Can I trouble you to look at the stage, not the crowd? Today is the special weekend Big Band performance. It's sure to be exciting!
wǒ kěyǐ yīxīnèryòng ma 。yō ， bùkuì shì dà yuèduì ，nàme dà páichǎng ！juéshì gǔ 、xiǎohào 、chánghào 、sàkèsīfēng 、gāngqín 、hái yǒu ge zhǐhuī 。gǎo zhème yī chǎng yǎnchū hái tǐng fèijìn de 。
I can do two things at once. It sure deserves the name ''Big Band"-- such extravagance! Jazz drums, trumpets, trombones, saxaphones, piano, and there's a conductor, too. Putting on such a big show takes a lot of work.
dāngrán luō 。zhè yě jiùshì dà yuèduì de mèilì 。shíjǐ ge yuèshǒu zài yīqǐ yǎnzòu juéshì jīngdiǎn ，chuānchā jíxìng fāhuī ，diàodòng guānzhòng de jījíxìng 。guānzhòng yuè tóurù ，yuèshǒu yě jiù yuè láijìnr5 。nà zhǒng xiànchǎng gǎn ，bǎozhèng nǐ yī tīng zhōngqíng ！
Of course. That's also the charm of a Big Band. A bunch of musicians performing jazz classics together, alternating and improvising, getting the audience involved. The more energy the audience gives, the more energetically the musicians play. I guarantee it'll be love the first time you get that live-show feeling.
Each lesson is centered around a natural dialogue with key vocabulary directly prepared and translated for your use. You can also listen to each sentence as an individual recording to improve your listening and comprehension skills.
