NJW Jam Session
Sunday, April 19
The Jazz Cave
Nashville Jazz Workshop, 1319 Adams Street
The next Nashville Jazz Workshop jam sessions takes place Sunday, April 19 from 4-6 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. 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.
This month our featured guest is vocalist Marcela Pinilla.
Marcela Pinilla is a Latin alternative singer whose musical journey has taken her around the world. She has had the pleasure of performing in many languages and in many countries from across South America to China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and the United States. The influence of both her journey across the globe and the vast array of musical styles she encountered along the way give Marcela a sound that is uniquely her own. - http://marcelapinilla.com/bio.html
