"Originally from the Metrowest area, Jesse currently lives and studies jazz performance in Hartford, Connecticut. Leading a band that plays straight-ahead jazz, Jesse tries to bring a classic jazz guitar sound to the bandstand. Joined by a great set of musicians, this group performs a refreshing take on the great american songbook and features original compositions by members of the band."The first hour of the jam is a concert, featuring the host band - some of the finest musicians from the area and often featuring great players from NYC and beyond. After the first hour, we open it up to the "jammers" who get the opportunity sit in and hone their skills trading licks with some of the finest players in the area. Some of the best jazz can be heard here any Tuesday night! Come watch or play!!
