Has anyone here figured out the JamKazam app? It is supposed to allow you to actually play along with other people in real time via the internet. I can't seem to make it work, but then I don't really have the necessary hardware. I'd like to be sure it works before I put money into the hardware.
RE: Olds Super Recording with sleeved leadpipe
Hey, Gary. Yes, I had 2. One was a sleeved leadpipe that had been overhauled by Getzen. It was almost like a new horn. Just a couple of very small blemishes. Then I have an unsleeved one that is ugly. Lacquer is 80% gone. It is in great shape other than that. It is my every day player. They were both fantastic horns, but the nice one was more valuable and I hated to take it on gigs for fear of damaging it. So it is the one I sold.
RE: Do You Prefer Classical, Jazz, Rock or Other?
Growing up there was nothing but big band around the house. All the greats. I didn't care for rock until I was in highschool. A friend played me Emerson, Lake, and Palmer's version of Bartok's Allegro Barbaro. Wow. That lead me to Yes, Genesis, and then on to some main stream rock of the 70's and 80's. CSN&Y, Doobies, King Crimson, Styx, Eagles, etc. I never listened to much classical at all until college. Then I discovered Baroque trumpet. That lead me into more music from the Baroque period, then on into other areas of Classical music. I married a farm girl and learned to appreciate country music.
Now I enjoy listening to anything that is played well.
