Live Music Movement Foundation (LMMF) in conjunction with Grant AME Church and One Love Center will host a series of Music and Jam Sessions on Sunday afternoons beginning September 11, 2016.
The sessions provide a vehicle to present quality music where musicians play (i.e. “jam”) by improvising without extensive preparation or predefined arrangements, except for jazz standards or covers of existing songs.
It is an intergenerational activity where seasoned musicians give opportunities for young musicians and others to ‘sit in’ and perform their choice of tunes. To ensure good quality music and that only appropriate-level performers take the stage, the session will be hosted by the Del Atkins Trio. These are professional musicians who will help guide and direct the music. The trio is comprised of leader Del Atkins, bass, Xavier Gordon, piano, and Felix Pollard, drums.
Join us and bring your friends and family for fun afternoons of good music and good fellowship. Musicians are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
The first session will be presented at Grant AME Church, 10435 S. Central Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90002 on September 11, 2016 from 2:00pm-5:00pm. The second session will be presented at One Love Center, 901 W. Compton Blvd., Compton, CA 90220 on September 18, 2016 from 2:00pm-5:00pm. The cost of the event is $10. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
