THE STAGE ~ ITAMI, JAPAN
Like all Japanese ways, even their Jam Sessions have a twist. This Jam was geared more towards Jazz players, house band being Jazz musicians, and each jammer does one song and then the next Jammer is asked up. There is a roll sheet each player fills out and each jammer provides sheet music…however, I did not provide charts, being an ‘off the cuff’ Blues Musician and they were OK with just winging it! *Jammer beware* for there was a $PAY TO PLAY$ (my first!!!) fee but students were free!!! Thumbs down for that, but a nice venue and accommodating host musicians. This jam only happens a few times a year so be sure to contact the venue before you go! Sionara!
