2nd and 4th Sundays at Marsol

marsolEffective July 2008, the Tower Mosaic jazz jam sessions have moved to a new venue -- Marsol in Fresno. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, guitarist Andre Bush and pianist David Aus host a jam session, with drummer Gary Newmark  and Roy Carlson on bass. Both Marsol jams begin at 7:00pm. "We enjoyed a great year and a half at Tower Mosaic, and we're thankful to everyone there for their support," says bassist Roy Carlson. "Now is a good time to move to a new location, and Marsol allows the jazz-loving community to enjoy great music and great food in a very welcoming atmosphere," he adds. Helen Cooley, owner of Marsol, says, "We're delighted to have the jam session at Marsol. You can't beat the combination of New Orleans cuisine and great jazz!" Marsol is located at 3075 N. Maroa Ave, one block south of Maroa & Shields Avenues in Fresno. More information about Marsol is available at

pizzafusionAfter years of producing award-winning jazz students and bands, it's only natural that Clovis should have a venue where students can go out to hear live jazz and show off their chops. And that's exactly what's taking place at a new jam session, held at Pizza Fusion in Clovis. Trombonist, vocalist and educator Les Nunes is hosting two jam sessions a month at this eco-friendly, organic pizzeria: on the second Sunday of each month (6p to 9p) and the fourth Thursday of each month (7p to 10p). Joining Nunes on the second Sunday sessions are guitarist Rich Severson, bassist Roy Carlson, and drummer Gary Newmark. The Thursday night rhythm section includes drummer George Ramirez, bassist Adan Infante, and pianist David Aus. Instrumentalists and vocalists are invited to sit-in.
