20-05-2019 12:00:00 20-05-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Full Circle Mondays - Hosted by Noah Jackson | 7:30PM The longstanding tradition of the after-hours jam in Harlem is back @ Gin Fizz Full Circle Mondays, hosted by Noah Jackson The history of the jam session is in many ways the history of jazz. Equal parts breeding ground and proving ground, the jam is inextricably tied to the history of the cutting contest, a blowing battle of one-upmanship over multiple choruses where players try to literally bust each other's chops. Historically, cutting contests are primarily identified as a phenomenon among stride pianists of the 1920s and '30s; stride greats like Fats Waller, Willie "The Lion" Smith and James P. Johnson were legendarily competitive at New York clubs and rent parties. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=373674 Gin Fizz Gin Fizz
