Jazz Show and Jazz Jam feat: host Jamie Stewardson
August 28, 2012
Jamie directs the Jazz program at the Rivers Music School. He received his MM degree in jazz composition from the New England Conservatory and has recently recorded two CDs of original works with Tony Malaby, George Schuller, Alexei Tsiganov, John Hebert and John Lockwood. Jamie's band is always very high level with the Rivers faculty forming the heart of the group.
The first hour of the jam is a concert, featuring the host band - some of the finest musicians from the area and often featuring great players from NYC and beyond. After the first hour, we open it up to the "jammers" who get the opportunity sit in and hone their skills trading licks with some of the finest players in the area. Some of the best jazz can be heard here any Tuesday night! Come watch or play!!
