About the Jazz Nabad:

The Jazz Nabad Jam Session is a new initiative by Beirut Speaks Jazz, co-produced by Metro Al Madina, which aims to bring the jam session spirit of the New York clubs to the Lebanese audience and most importantly, jazz musicians.

What exactly is a jam session?

The New York scene during World War II was famous for its after-hours jam sessions. One of the most famous was the regular after-hours jam at Minton's Playhouse in New York City that ran in the 1940s and early 1950s. The jam sessions at Minton's were a fertile meeting place and proving ground for both established soloists like Ben Webster and Lester Young, and the younger jazz musicians who would soon become leading exponents of the bebop movement, including Thelonious Monk (Minton's house pianist), Charlie Parker, and Dizzy Gillespie. The Minton's jams were legendary for their highly competitive "cutting contests", in which soloists would try to keep up with the house band and outdo each other in improvisation skill.
