    Hi everyone,

    given that human interactions are reduced to a minimum due to lockdown restrictions, and that jazz is essentially a social music, I was wondering if anyone of you would be interested in playing together on JamKazam, or at least give it a try.

    I live in the UK. I've been playing guitar for 30 odd years, mainly Chicago blues, and I have been learning jazz for the past 3. I am into swing era standards. I am not a fast player, but I am a quick learner. I have a 10-15 song repertoire that includes blues, ballads, and rhythm tunes.

    I am available in the evenings during the week, and am quite flexible during weekends.

    Cheers!
    Alessandro

    Hi Alessandro
    Just sign up, log in and either join an existing session or create a public one for others to join.

    Jazz sessions fill quickly and there are many players keen to join in and share their experiences from all over the world.

    I am based in Australia so time differences and internet lag can make playing with the UK problematic but I have managed a few good sessions and happy to catch up anytime our time on matches. My user name is shown as Mike Cardinal (Australia) look me up and send a friend request.

    all the best and hope to catch you in a session soon.

    Hi Mike,

    thanks for the reply. I did sign up and join channels, but I was rather looking for ppl to play with on a more regular basis (weekly, or bi-weekly).

    I will add your email on my contacts and hope to see you soon online!

    Cheers,
    Alessandro

    Hi Alessandro,

    I live in San Francisco and have a similar playing/experience profile, but more pop/rock and newer to jazz. I’d love to work on swing standards. I don’t have access to PMs on this forum (yet? Just registered), but let’s figure out how to connect.

    I'd give it a shot, oh wait. I misread that you were in Chicago.
