Sittin’ In introduces audiences to new cutting-edge artists. It defies genre, often drawing from everything from straight-ahead jazz to freestyle hip hop and all points in between. There’s an unpredictability to the night, which we enthusiastically embrace! Sometimes you’ll experience a finely tuned set and sometimes you can catch a totally improvised show by seven people who have never played together. The awesome creativity, excitement, and quality always shine through in The Kimmel Center’s informal club-like setting, featuring early warm-up sets by some of the hottest DJs around. And, it’s free!
Be our guest. Come by sometime and see who is Sittin’ In.
The James Santangelo Trio has become an integral part of the Philadelphia jazz scene. This hard hitting trio has played with jazz greats such as Ralph Bowen and Dick Oatts, and brings the same energy and attitude when backing local artists or running the weekly jam session at Chris' Jazz Cafe. After years of playing together and refining their sound, the trio has released their first CD, 'The Odyssey.' Santangelo, joined by bassist Matt Keppler and drummer Khary Shaheed, puts on exciting and dynamic performances, playing originals and fresh arrangements of classics new and old.
