Bristol has always done well for Jam Sessions – there always seems to be one or two on the go somewhere. There’s a positive rash on this week. East Bristol Jazz Club tonight at the Greenbank in Easton (second monthly session for the reborn Cross Hands, used to be Seymours session) – clashing here with Ben Blackmore’s long standing Half Moon Session in Stoke’s Croft. A new session starts off at the Albert in Bedminster on Wednesday with pianist Martin Jenkins hosting and if you’ve still got some puff… in Bath on Thursday the ‘termly’ St. James Wine Vaults session. Lovely rhythm sections too. I wonder too if the grandaddy of them all, the Tantric Jazz CAfe session is still going. Its Christmas for jammers!
Jam for Christmas?
