  My First Jam Session

 Carole Freeman 

Nervous, expectant, worried, nauseous, excited - and that was just the friend I cajoled into coming along with me to my first Jam Session! I think he was worried he’d have to pretend that I’d done well and he's not very good at pretending. But it was great. I sang " Lullaby of Birdland " and it really felt like I had. The crowd and I loved it and I’ve been hooked on performing ever since.


Jam Sessions gave me the opportunity to sing with some of New York’s top musicians at some fantastic venues. Also, Jams introduced me to a fantastic group of people who were equally as excited about Jazz. Exhilarated, excited, energized and full of life, that's me every time I get a chance to sing!
