How Rude – Singing at a Jazz Jam Session

Me: “I’m told I need to rudely importune you if I want to sing”

He: “Ooooh! I love being rudely importuned! I see you’ve come as Cleopatra”

Me: “Looked like a classy gig. If in doubt, overdress, I thought”

He “It’s a good look. Don’t think we’ve met – what’s your name? I’m going to put you on first”

"Mind if I sing?"
“Mind if I sing?”


This is how Jazz Jam Sessions work:  you just turn up, talk to the guy, and they put you on with any luck. You’ll need your own sheet music, at least 3 copies, unless it’s a well-known jazz standard, in which case a chord chart will do.
