NJW Jam Session
Sunday, May 19
The Jazz Cave
Nashville Jazz Workshop, 1319 Adams Street
Nashville Jazz Workshop jam sessions take place the 3rd Sunday of each month from 4 to 6 pm.
Jam sessions are led by saxophonist Evan Cobb and his quartet, with a featured guest artist each month. Participation is designed for musicians of all ability levels. The return of the Workshop Jam Session is a bit reformatted. Besides playing (or singing) a few choice selections, the guest artist will speak about the songs they selected, learning tunes in general, and their personal experiences with jam sessions. The host band will also provide the guest artist with a new tune (with copies for everyone in attendance) so that the audience can hear how a professional dissects a chart on the fly while on the bandstand! All in attendance at the jam will also receive a copy of a tune (most likely a blues) for them to try in just the same manner as the featured guest. The focus of the workshop jazz jam will be to learn about playing, listening critically, and the process of jam sessions altogether.
The Next Jam Session is Sunday, May 19, w/ featured guest: saxophonist Don Aliquo
