I’ve been playing organ for Ben Palmer’s Jazz Jam every monday at the Blue Note Grill in Durham. The jam session is always packed with great musicians, and it gets better every week. One time, in front of a packed house, Ben asked how many people in the club were musicians- about 40% of the people in the place played music. Another time, we had 6 jazz guitar players show up on one night!
The excellent musicians and the supportive atmosphere of the club make for some high-level music. The purpose of this blog is to try to document some of the sights and sounds from this remarkable weekly music hang.
