Jazz Improvisation Class

I didn't know we were supposed to bring our musical instruments to the first class so the instructor made me sing. As part of the class today, he made everyone play (or sing in my case) "solos" using the blues scale in Bb concert. It's much easier playing than trying to sing and hit the right notes in the scale.

I still haven't decided which instrument to use. Bringing the trumpet would be the easiest but it's harder to play and you can't play chords. I would prefer to bring the bass but not sure what to do about amplification. All my equipment is heavy and bulky.
