"A high-wire act that takes more chances than anything I've heard outside the strictly avant-guard" - Jazzwise
Guest artist & house band from 5pm, jam session 6pm - 8pm.
The format of this event is a 1 hour performance by our house band + a special guest, followed by a jam session. The jam session is based on jazz improvisation, so please make sure you are comfortable following jazz chord charts and 'Real Book' type arrangements. We strongly recommend that people wanting to sit in come for at least one session before to spectate prior to participating, to introduce themselves to the house band and discuss what they might play next time. To ensure sitters-in get a good length of stage time, we pre-book 20 minute slots, so please make yourself known at the session prior and 'like' the Nottingham Jazz Jam Session Facebook page for updates and further info.
