First of all, I am so impressed with the effort that Dr. Nelson Harrison has made into this community and the quality of the content and people that are coming here to support it! Thanks to all of you for letting me know a little more about yourselves here.
One of the things that I would like to learn more about is what jam sessions there are in Pittsburgh. My interests span a variety of music from jazz, funk, soul, gospel, blues and jam band styles. I know there are great places to come out where great improvisation and jam music is spontaenously happening... I am just not sure where and when these take are taking place. Usually the best things happen in the places that we least know about.
There are a few that I know are well noted opportunities where some of our local legends open the stage up for guests and young players to come up... I am just not sure how to find all of the opportunities where that is happening, and what nights to show up.
I am hoping that one of the things we can accomplish with this community is a way for everyone to know where jam sessions are happening and a way to promote efforts to start up new ones. I think this leads to all of us expanding our horizons to be exposed more broadly to so much diverse talent that may reside beyond our existing circles of friends.
