Jam Session: June 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, June 12, 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 that may change from month to month. The lineup for this month is DeMarco Johnson (piano), Sofia Goodman (drums), and Alec Newman (bass). Doors at 4:30.
June Jam Session Tunes:
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.
