jam sessions

The new academy of jazz … In weekly jam sessions, Montreal musicians are keeping alive the tradition that makes the music grow...Craig Moy capital.arts.online

Alex Bellegarde’s dynamic Tuesday jam session has become one of Montreal’s hippest weekly jazz events. The first set fires up with Bellegarde and his trio, playing host to a range of well known talents from the Montreal scene as well as musicians from out of town. The jam opens in the second set, to any jazz musician with the confidence to step up and play… there’s an unspoken rule though: “If you can’t keep up, you shouldn’t be on stage”. A great place to play and chill… the jam continues on into the early hours !

« My first experience at a jam session was down at Jazzons in the Quartier Latin district of Montreal in 97 with Skip Bey leading. Skip's 'good vibes' jam sessions, his musicianship and encouragement have inspired many musicians like me to want to continue leading and participating in weekly jam sessions. » AB
