Powered by Recommended !Justjazz discussion list. We highly recommend all jazz musicians subscribe to the justjazz discussion list owned and run by Reed Kotler. Reed is a jazz composer, pianist, and teacher, currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area. The discussions on this list are generally of a very high quality and cover a broad range of topics from Jazz theory, composition, arranging, reharmonization, improvisation, education, and engraving. It is essentially a technical forum and not a place for discussing CD's, jazz history, advertising concerts, or other commerical ventures.

To get some idea of what it's like, have a look at the edited JustJazz archives (Vol. 1 - 112). They've now moved to a new listserver and handling your subscription is now a lot easier.

Creating Music On-Line

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.
