But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Sunday, April 7th – 5-8pm
Bishop O’Dowd High School Jazz Ensemble
followed by a jam session with the Akira Tana Trio

The first Sunday of the month is a set aside for a jam session for young jazz musicians hosted by a professional trio, with a student combo from one of the area’s fine jazz programs opening the evening with a 45 minute set.

This month, Bishop O’Dowd High School in Oakland sends us another great band, bursting with young talent. Then, drummer Akira Tana leads a jam session with his trio, open to student musicians from all directions. The art of the session is a key skill that aspiring jazz musicians take to with astonishing results. Always a pleasure to hear!
