    Hi
    Looking to find anyone interested in getting together in Geelong.
    I am not the most advanced player, getting old (mid 50's) and love modern Jazz.
    totally tired of jamming with BIAB and looking for REAL players to work with.

    cheers

    I did learn some of the Simplified versions in my youth (still have the book somewhere). Check out the chord solo sections on this site also there is a wealth of info and some great arrangements (not that I can play them yet). Look forward to having a go at whatever you want to bring over.

    cheers

    I also have a few older style duets written by Eddie Lang, Carl Kress and Joe Venuti if you are looking for a real challenge.. (somewhat beyond my skill at the moment but could be something to work towards).

    cheers
