Jazz Composer's Session

The Forward Jazz Collective hosts an open jam session where musicians can bring lead sheets to their own compositions.

The session is currently on hiatus and will resume in the fall.

If you would like to participate in the session, please bring 5 copies of a one- to two-page lead sheet of your original tune. Your tune will be sight-read on the bandstand with any combination of Collective members and other musician/composers sitting in that night.

Please see our FAQ for additional information.

Notating tips and good chart/bad chart examples can be found here.
