Savannah Music Festival LIVE 609 – Late Night Jazz Jam 2013

In its most simple definition, a jam session is a musical event where musicians play by improvising without extensive preparation. Jazz jam sessions are an old tradition that allow players to test their skills in front of an audience, usually playing well known standards yet ones that require a common vocabulary. In this episode, we listen to a 2013 late night jazz jam led by pianist Aaron Diehl and featuring such guests as Wycliffe Gordon, Terell Stafford, Walter Blanding Jr., David Wong and many others.
