Once there was the Midi
Jazz Network (MJN) founded by Benjamin Lewis, a
professional jazz pianist in the city of Chicago. Sadly, because of time commitments he
has had to abandon MJN but the good news is he has now become a part of a new online music
adventure called ResRocket. The MJN site is still
up and running and has some excellent Jazz Midi Files on it.
Res Rocket was formed in November 1994 by two British musicians, Willy
Henshall and Tim Bran. Willy Henshall, an award-winning songwriter, producer and member of
the band Londonbeat, and Tim Bran, a successful engineer, producer, and member of the band
Dreadzone, began posting messages and sound files on Usenet (the Internet's
bulletin-board) - and later on an ftp and Web site - from their West London studio. People
from all over the world started replying with song ideas and sound files. By January 1995
about 600 members were regularly checking this little corner of the Internet.
Res Rocket is a now a large network of musicians using free Distributed
Real-time Groove Network (DRGN) software to compose, jam and make music.
