The Charis Ioannou Quartet hosts the fun Jazz Party and Jam Session at Sarah’s Jazz Club.
Starting on Wednesday, September 6th, the Charis Ioannou Quartet hosts the fun Jazz Party and Jam session at Sarah’s Jazz Club. The party starts on September 6th, 2017, and continues every other Wednesday from 9:30pm ’til late. Tickets are at the special price of Euros 5 per person, and free for musicians who plan to jam. Bookings are made by SMS/Call to 95147711.
The event starts with a performance by stellar saxophonist Charis Ioannou and his Quartet. Bandleader and international saxophonist Charis Ioannou chairs the whole night. Ioannou impresses audiences at home and abroad with his inspired, high-energy virtuoso performances. The tight, precise rhythm section is made up of master drummer Marios Spyrou and Mood Indigo bassist Greg Makamian. Pianist Dimitris Miaris brings his bebop sensitivity and improvisational talent to the stage. Guest musician Konstantinos Efraimides chimes in with the charm and sweetness of the clarinet.
The band’s performance is followed by an informal jam session. Jam sessions are an important part of the jazz community. Musicians are invited on stage and given the opportunity to play live with each other. It’s a chance for student jazz musicians to get experience, and for professionals to get inspiration and exposure. The jam session is also open to vocalists.
You never know who will appear to play during a jam session. The fascinating improvisation and positive energy on stage is what makes jazz jam sessions such a lively tradition. But one thing is for sure, whether it’s a big name or a musician who’s just starting out, the audience always loves the results.
