  3. Music Venues Around the World
    Hey gang! Everyone in my immediate family except for me has recently relocated to beautiful Salem, Oregon, and I'll be spending a week there in late September.

    How do jam sessions work? By that I mean, do people work off the real books? Is a particular tune in a particular key called out? Do people show up knowing the chord changes for jazz standards? I read--and it may have been in this forum--that back in the day Charlie Parker and others would weed...
  6. Who We Are & "Get Togethers"
    Hi SOTW, I was thinking it'd be AWESOME if anyone who was up for a jam would mark their location on this map. That way if a fellow SOTW member was travelling and wanted to get together for a jam, we could message each other and meet up. I've started things off here...

  11. The Band
    I hope this is not a stupid question, but I was wondering what are some ways that a novice sax player can find to start playing with other people? Open mic nights? I am starting to think about playing with other people but not certain about the right way to go about it.
