The Jam Session of the Hamptons is based on the art of improvising with Jazz as the primary foundation. However, other styles and influences are present as well.
The Jam Session is continuously trying to promote and encourage musicians and audience members from the global community participate, creating an eclectic mix of music and culture.
The Jam Session is inspired by the late night jam sessions and loft rehearsals in New York City. We believe that the evolution and survival of improvisational music takes place in front of a live audience, being inclusive and accessible to all who wants to engage.
It’s their intent…
