Njw Jam Session says
The next Nashville Jazz Workshop jam session takes place Sunday, September 18 from 4-6 pm.

The NJW Jam Session is a monthly community event hosted by Evan Cobb or Matt Endahl. Taking place every third Sunday of the month (typically), the popular session is a fertile ground for the large contingent of great jazz players and enthusiasts in Middle Tennessee. Geared for 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. Each month a different featured guest leads the band and calls tunes. The event is completely FREE, but we do pass around a tip jar.

A few rules for newcomers:

1. First time players cannot use a real book!

2. If you're bringing an arrangement or original, please have printed copies transposed for E-flat, B-flat, and bass clef instruments.

3. Vocalists! If you're singing an uncommon tune or even a common tune in a strange key, it's best to bring charts for the rhythm section and horn players.

4. The jam is fully backlined with amps and drums, but please bring your own cords and drumsticks.

5. Soft drinks are available for purchase. All other food and beverages are BYO

This month's jam session is hosted by Evan Cobb, with special guest Abigail Flowers.

Abigail Flowers is a versatile musician and songwriter with a passion for great melodies. While attending Belmont University, she was a member of the Downbeat award-winning vocal jazz ensemble Jazzmin. After graduating with a degree in Commercial Music, she spent two years performing with the Nashville Salsa Collective at local venues and college festivals. Abigail then spent several months performing at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, MI, where she truly began to study jazz. In addition to recording an original album called "Take It Slow" in 2014, Abigail has appeared as a background vocalist on albums by local artists like The Aquaducks, Cody Fry, Dynamo, RJ Bracchitta, and Del-Amina.
