I overheard Monk’s “Straight No Chaser” as I was walking back from lunch. I followed the sound and landed into GW’s Music Department. The jam session is free to the public from noon to 2pm. I sat in and enjoyed the familiar standards played by the faculty. Then they encouraged the students to come up and join them. They were impressive and passionate. I didn’t get to stay long for the obvious reason, but I’ll try to work it into my lunch break every Friday.
