Jam Session: July 2022

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, July 10, from 5-7 pm, in the Jazz Cave. The new NJW jam sessions will be hosted by Monica Shriver and Chris West with a house band Lindsey Miller (guitar), Alec Newman (bass), Marcus Finnie (drums).  Doors at 4:30.

July Jam Session Tunes:

The Jody Grind
Pent Up House
Summertime
Four
Bye Bye Blackbird
A Night In Tunisia
The Night Has a Thousand Eyes
Sonnymoon for Two
Cottontail
My One And Only Love
*if singers would like to perform a song not in “standard” key, please bring a lead sheet.

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.
