Jam Session: February 2023

Not your average jam session

We’re excited to bring back the Nashville Jazz Workshop jam session with a fun new twist! This is a curated jam session for musicians of all levels, beginner to pro. Each month we will post a list of compositions to be performed at the jam session. Performers will sign up at the venue for specific tunes.

This is not a typical jam session “performance” – there will be the option to stop, restart, discuss, and consider intros, endings, and stylistic choices.

It takes place Sunday, February 12th, from 5-7 pm, in the Jazz Cave. The new NJW jam sessions will be hosted by Monica Shriver and Chris West. Doors at 4:30.

February Jam Session Tunes:

These tunes can be done in different keys if charts are provided by the person sitting in. Otherwise, they will be done in the standard real book key:
Falling In Love With Love
Let’s Fall In Love
L.O.V.E
Moanin’
My Funny Valentine
Only Trust Your Heart
Our Love Is Here to Stay
Take The A Train

These tunes will be done in the specified key:

I Love You (F Major)
Just Friends (G Major)

The new NJW Jam Session series is partially supported through a gift from the Carolyn Kulkin Fund for Education and Community.

There is a suggested donation of $10 for this event to cover additional expenses.

The Nashville Jazz Workshop has soft drinks available for purchase. All other food and beverages are BYO.

The NJW Jam Session is a community event. Taking place once a month, the popular session is a fertile ground for the large contingent of great jazz players and enthusiasts in Middle Tennessee. Geared for all levels of performers – professionals, serious students of jazz, and those who love to listen, – this jam session is a chance for players to hear each other, meet, and collaborate. The NJW Jam Session is an open forum, so we encourage listeners to ask questions.
