    gotta hang around the velvet lounge and the green mill on organ jam night (haven't been there in ages, but it used to be wed. nights)--most folks there are open to stuff. talk to everybody, you never know.

    if they do a chicago jazz trolley tour again next year, do it. jazz players at venues that sometimes rarely have music, and the atmosphere was really communal. (it was this past august) i was able to make some nice connections and hopefully will get together with some of these folks in the future.

    and then there's me--are you a guitar player too, i assume? where are you located?

    Hi, this my first post here. I just got on today and I've been checking out some of the chordal melody arrangements (very nice). Looks like a good website. I was going to wait to post but I saw this and couldn't resist.

    Senese's is 5 minutes from where I live. Do you still jam there?

    I think I saw some of you guys play in a trio format @the Berverly Arts Center last summer. The piano player doubled on guitar from time to time. I was invited to check out the show by a drummer named Mike Madden, who is friends with the bass player.

    Unless I am, of course, totally off the mark. In which case, I apologize.

    We have played there quite a few times, but our piano player does not double on guitar; we have: piano, guitar, bass, drums in my group. Please come out and play with us if you can.

    I now remember two of the three musicians I saw at the Beverly Arts Center last summer:

    Rusty Jones, drums
    Pete Vancura, double and electric bass


    The 3rd guy was the piano player who also played some acoustic guitar, but unfortunately, the name still escapes me.

    Rusty Jones is well known as a monster drummer; good lineup there.

    I've been living in Chicago West Suburb for a couple of years.

    Does anyone know any nice Latin jazz guitarist( like Al Di Meola) in Chicago area?
