“Come to listen or come to jam!  Bring your own instrument, except for drums, which will be provided,” encouraged Robertson.

“The jam session musicians will create a pipeline for the ‘emerging artist’ set at the Leimert Park Jazz Festival held annually on the last Saturday of August.”

The jazz series will be held every fourth Sunday of the month at ORA, 4331 Degnan Blvd., in the historic Leimert Park Village neighborhood of Los Angeles. The admission fee is $10 at the door.

“ORA is a newly renovated and refined community space owned by husband-and-wife team, Tony Jolly and Tina Amin,” Robertson said.

Inviting the public to attend, she added, “Join us and spread the word as we uplift local rising Jazz stars and expand the Leimert Park Jazz Festival community.”
