Newport Jazz presents – Jam Sessions at The Blue Room

Wed November 8 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 11:59 pm

Newport Jam Sessions

Newport Jazz presents: Jam Sessions @ The Blue Room 

This is a space for all musicians to come together and perform in an inclusive, multigenerational setting. The jam sessions will feature a house band and curated jazz repertoire.

Thelonious Monk

Each session will be themed to focus on the music and legacy of a jazz artist; musicians are encouraged to play a tune written by that artist. A different jazz artist will be announced a week ahead of time to give musicians time to learn and explore that artist’s music.
