It’s really exciting tosee some new, weekly jam sessions happeningaround town, several of which are organized,promoted and hosted by hugely talented youngartists like saxophonist Emily Steinwall, who willbe entering her 2nd year at Humber College thismonth. The house band consists of fellow Humberheavies Youngchan Na on guitar, Hayden Farraron bass and Louis Baranyi-Irvine on drums. Thejams run every Sunday from 4 to 7pm except forthe second week of the month – so September 7, 21and 28 at Relish on the Danforth. I caught up withSteinwall to find out a bit more about the who, thewhere, the how and the why behind the sessions.What or who inspired you to start running aweekly jam session?There is another weekly jam session in the westend run by Nick Morgan that I attend as often aspossible at the Annette studios. I always have agreat time at the Annette jam, and it was a big partof the inspiration to start one up in the east end.I think this type of traditional jam session is so beneficial for musicianswho want to play jazz because it gives them a chance to playwith new people and hear other players on the scene, and apart fromthe Annette jam there aren’t many other things like this happening inToronto. I realized that there was a lack of places for people to get outand jam, though there was a huge demand for it, so I started one upat my house around the end of May … within a few weeks, too manypeople were coming out and I had to find a bigger venue, which iswhen I asked Relish.What makes Relish an ideal spot for this event?C.

Relish is a great fit for this type of jam session because it is minutesaway from the subway line, already has the required equipment set upand offers cheap drinks for the musicians who come to play ( pintsof Ontario craft beer are offered to all jammers). The people who workthere are very friendly and relaxed, which gives the jam a fun andeasy-going vibe.What do musicians need to know if they are planning tocome to the jam?Rhythm section instruments will be provided, as wellas microphones for the vocalists, but horn players need tobring their own instruments. Musicians who are planning tocome and play should know material coming out of the GreatAmerican Songbook and other standard material – somethingthat many people will know how to play without having toread a chart. The material played is coming straight out of thejazz/swing tradition. There are a few basic etiquette things thatpeople should understand about jam sessions: first of all, if thereare many people who want to play, don’t hog the bandstand.This means taking a tasteful amount of choruses, not havingmore than two horn players on one tune and only playing oneor two before letting the next group get up. Give everyone achance to play!Secondly, be open to all levels of players and do not be ajerk. This jam is for everyone to have fun and share their joy formusic, and there is no room for egos. Don’t call tunes that areobscure/heavily arranged and expect everyone to know them.Come in with an open mind and be ready to play anything … inthis type of situation, simpler is better! There is no cover, butthere is a tip jar for the members of the house band to get paid with. A to donation is recommended for people coming to play.Here’s wishing Emily Steinwall the best of luck with this session –you’ll be seeing yours truly there often!Another new jam session on Tuesday evenings takes place on Bloornear Ossington at Blakbird (without a letter ‘c’) which is the downstairsof Pero Lounge. The host, Kalya Ramu, is a fantastic vocalist inher senior year at Humber.
