Jazz Jam was the inspiration of Chris Rottmayer and Per Danielsson, professors at University of South Florida and University of Central Florida, and their love for the art of the jam. “Re-creating the ‘teaching moments’ they experienced as young musicians,” says Rottmayer, “ensures the nuanced art of the Jam will not be a lost.” Rottmayer continues, “The opportunities for a weekly session with so many fine pros does not exist in Central Florida. What Pilars Martini brings to this community is exceptional, for both young and old who are inspired to learn or engage in their passion for jazz and participate alongside the pros.”
