Natalie's Jams on Saturday!

Local pianist, Dan Paul, was ticklin' the ivory at Natalie's famed Saturday Jam Session hosted by Lucky Thompson. This place has hosted jazz activities for over 50 years at the same location. Natalie's should be on the historical ledger of jazz joints! Ms. Carol "Bebop" Harris was also in the house and stirred the crowd with some of her animated stylings. Bassist Kenny Davis, Donald Washington, Saxophonist and Napolean Black, Percussionist, were in the house, too! A student from Penn named Jason Edwards sat in for Lucky and really showed some talent. Check out Natalie's at 40th & Market Streets and see the past, present and future of the music in Philly!
