If you haven’t voted in our poll about changing the jam time or the format you have until midnight Tues. That’s when the poll closes. Here’s a link to the poll.
Now, on to our usual business….
We had an outstanding jam today. The crowd was huge with standing room only for almost the entire jam! I talked to many in the audience and it seemed everyone heard about the jam from different sources. It seemed to be one of those days where everything aligned and many people felt like joining us. It sure made for a festive atmosphere , inspired jammers, and terrific music.
Let’s keep it up and have another great turnout for our next jam on Dec 21st. Tell your friends about what a great time it is. Trumpeter David Cooper will be our educator and will be joined by David Stoler – piano, John Mesoloras – bass, and Devin Drobka – drums. The tune-of-the-week is Hoagy Carmichael’s, “The Nearness of You.”
Most of you are familiar with Norah Jones take on this beautiful ballad. The Frank Sinatra and Jo Stafford versions are also popular. Here is my favorite by Nancy Wilson.
Do we have any vocalists that want to sing this song with us? Singers are always welcome!
Michael’s prep notes will be on the site later this week. See you at the jam.
