Beginning Jan. 11, JazzWorks is introducing a different kind of jam session in a different kind of location.
Located at Festival House, 450 Churchill Avenue, the Sunday afternoon jam session is intended as a comfortable learning environment for less experienced singers and instrumentalists, but musicians at all levels can take part.
The new Sunday jam, running from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the afternoon, is patterned after the beginner’s jam sessions that were introduced at the JazzWorks jazz camp in the summer. Those jam sessions were mentored by faculty members and instruction was given to help participants get the most out of the jam session experience.
We’re pleased to announce that bassist and JazzWorks artistic director John Geggie will be on hand as mentor for the first Sunday jam. Geggie, along with a host band, will help guide the proceedings.
Non-alcoholic refreshments will be available.
