On Thursday, Apr. 21, 2022, JazzWorks revives its beloved monthly jam sessions. The music starts at 7:30 pm at Festival Japan, 149 Kent St. Admission is $10, $5 for JazzWorks Friends. The host band will be Off the Record, featuring Frank Edgerton (piano), Neil Sealy (bass), André Ferraton (drums), and Edwin Gans (sax). Following their set, the stage will be open to all musicians for the rest of the evening. Vocalists, feel free to bring your own mics.
For those of you who enjoy a meal at the jams, food from Festival Japan's dinner menu will be available. Please make dinner reservations by calling (613) 234-1224. For participants who like to arrive later in the evening, a selection of appetizers and drinks will be available. The kitchen closes at 9 pm.
:Looking further ahead, planning is underway for a JazzWorks Memorial Jam in June (exact date TBD) to celebrate the lives of our JazzWorks friends Marylise Chauvette, Howard Tweedle, Loic Martin, Ryszard Kowalski, and Tim Leah. We need volunteers to help make this happen. If you are able to help, please contact Leslie Toope.
