For the last 6 years, I’ve been running a weekly jam session for jazz vocalists. I started these at De Badcuyp in Amsterdam, and after a few successful years, I moved them to Bethany’s Jazz Club, in the beautiful basement of Het Bethanienklooster, a former medieval convent in Amsterdam. Known for it’s relaxed atmosphere and good music, originally it was started to create a podium for the vocal students of Deborah J. Carter. It’s turned into a great tuesday night hang and jam for professionals and students alike.
Update: due to the sale of the building that housed Bethany’s Jazz Club, the Amsterdam Vocal Session is suspended until further notice.
