Jazzanooga’s Eclectic Jam Session cooks at the Camp House
One of our favorite arts organizations, Jazzanooga, has really been ramping it up this year, and we especially love the effort being put into revitalizing what used to be the sizzling “Big Nine” neighborhood.
Jazzanooga’s “Live on the Big Nine” Performance Series includes the Big Nine Book Club, which last week featured a discussion of “Go Set A Watchman” at Wafflez Factory. The Gospel & Soul Brunch is an ongoing monthly event as well at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center, and there will be another “Juke Joint Session & Memo’s” on Aug. 27.
This week, however, is the time to get yourselves to the Camp House for another “Eclectic Jam Session,” which is open to singers, musicians, spoken-word artists and other “creative performers to get together in impromptu collaborations or planned performances.” You can sign up to perform at the door, or just sit back and enjoy the swirling art vibes. We can’t dig it more.
