“The mission of this jam is to educate and engage the Jazz loving community of Denver by creating a theme based jam session where musicians play specific arrangements from historic jazz recordings. Through a limitation of content, we hope to bring a greater sense of preparedness and fulfillment from a gathering of like-minded musicians. We welcome dedicated musicians of all skill levels to come celebrate this music with us in order to keep our collective community and musical standards evolving.”
