The Racer Sessions is a Seattle music series dedicated to experimental music and free improvisation. Hosted by Cafe Racer, Racer Sessions has met almost every Sunday evening since its founding in 2010 by University of Washington music students and veterans of Seattle’s free jazz scene. Part concert and jam session, Racer Sessions has hosted hundreds of local and visiting artists and harbors an unparalleled digital archive containing nearly a decade of improvised music from the weekly sessions.

The Racer Sessions has been featured by the New York Times and is the subject of an ongoing anthropologic study.
