NJW Jam Session
Sunday, February 15
The Jazz Cave
Nashville Jazz Workshop, 1319 Adams Street
The next Nashville Jazz Workshop jam sessions takes place Sunday, February 15 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.
The February 15 Jam Session will be led by bassist Jonathan Wires, filling in for Evan Cobb, who's out of town. The month's special guest will be guitarist Lindsey Miller who will be bringing her original music. Also on hand will be Justin Cromer on drums and James Westfall on vibes and piano.
All instruments and vocalists are invited. Admission is free and anyone is welcome to attend.
