Monday Night Jam Series

Every Monday, the Jazz Foundation helps keep the spirit of the Music alive by hosting a jam session at the musicians' union in midtown Manhattan.

The event, produced and funded by the JFA, is free and open to the public. The environment offers seasoned veterans a place to meet, perform and network, and presents up-and-comers with the opportunity to find mentors and learn from the originals. It has rightly become a fixture in the jazz community, as it showcases the music and provides an informal gathering spot for artists and fans alike. On any given night, you could see four generations of musicians, from former members of the Count Basie band to teenage prodigies, all sharing the stage together. There's really nothing else like it in New York.
