London Music Improv Jam
A series of accessible improvised jams on basic musical themes introduced by your host. Each theme will be built up to three layers. • The foundation layer is just the basic music theme. Themes for this event will be posted here (https://marmalade.latentmusic.com/) when available. • The groove layer allows players to get comfortable and explore the sound according to their abilities (no solos). This is really about listening. • The lead/solo layer is for one person at a time. I will be queuing in each player’s lead/soloing windows. The overall simplicity or complexity of the music will be determined by the players, but the three layers should ensure a comfort level for everyone. Players are advised to arrive early in order benefit from the orientation at the beginning. Cost covers PA, vocal mics, backline and drum kit, but do ensure to bring your instrument of choice and any leads/cables/cords and accessories needed for your instrument. If you have any questions about this session, please get in touch with Colin. Looking forward to jamming with you soon!

What we're about

We have fun playing musical improvisation jams. The sessions are organised to be approachable to rusty and new jammers but also interesting and challenging for experienced jammers. We meet in a rehearsal studio and are excited to have all kinds of instruments and people.

We generally do not play songs. This is in order to keep things simple and maximize playing time. Musical themes in the form of chord progressions or ideas will be introduce one at a time by your host on the day but are also posted in advance on an external link video previews.
