The Jazz Academy Jam Sessions are a community-focused, curated jam session series held the second Tuesday of each month in the Jazz Academy. Jazz musicians of all ages and experience levels are invited to participate in the jam. Each session will have a theme with a list of tunes that will be drawn from.
This jam will draw from the famous Miles Davis record Kind of Blue. Click here to access lead sheets to each tune! We recommend learning these tunes by listening to the record in addition to the lead sheets provided.
- So What
- Freddie Freeloader
- Blue in Green
- All Blues
- Flamenco Sketches
- Terrance Farmer, saxophone/leader
- Paul Strawser, piano

Participants will learn the ins and outs of small-group jamming, including tools for band leading and successful improvisation. Led by some of Columbus’ finest musicians, the Jazz Academy Jam Sessions are an inclusive, engaging jam environment for all. We also invite non-musicians to come participate as audience members of the jam.
