Ellington & Strayhorn Jam Session

Calling jazz musicians of all ages! The National Jazz Museum in Harlem invites you to join us for our Saturday Sessions Ellington Jam.  Presented in partnership with The Jazz Foundation of America Gig Fund, we are proud to present monthly jam sessions led by the David Durrah Trio featuring music exclusively from the Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn songbook.

Grab your instrument, bring a chart, and build your chops with a community of budding contemporary musicians and living legends a we give homage to Harlem’s jazz giants. Don’t play an instrument? Don’t fret. Saturday Sessions are a space for jazz musicians and fans alike. Grab a latté, a seat, and soak up an afternoon dedicated to vibrant live music scene here in Harlem. Let’s jam!
