Dewey Drop-In presents Jazz Jams
Inspired by the storied, genre defining, open jazz jams from the formative era of jazz music, we will hold a monthly open jazz jam to unite members of the region’s vibrant musical community, inspiring new connections across a diverse range of skill levels, often pairing professional musicians with budding talent.
Jazz Jams were at the center of many of the innovations in jazz music. Musicians would meet after gigs ended to play into the night with others. These early jazz jams are at the center of the creation of Bebop music, offering young players like Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie the priceless opportunity to play with jazz icons such as Ben Webster & Lester Young.
Jazz jams are organized by Brian Kantor and these sessions will be hosted and facilitated by local jazz guitarist Luke Franco and feature a house band (trio or quartet).
October’s house band TBA
