Jam sessions are about more than just "noodling" on a horn or keyboard. Saxophonist Tivon Pennicott says jamming is a great way to socialize with other musicians and see how your skills stack up. He's joined by bassist Bill McKemy, who is the director of Education and Public Programs at the American Jazz Museum.
Tivon Pennicott will give a clinic on 'The Art of Jam Session' at 9 a.m. on August 20. The presentation is part of the American Jazz Museum's Charlie Parker Celebration, going on through August 30. For more information, visit AmericanJazzMuseum.org.
