I'm a New York City based bassist that studies Jazz and I play both the upright and bassguitar. I really like playing Jazz a lot on my bassguitar but I can't find to many situations where I can do this. I'm in a jazz style band right now where I get to play my bassguitar but I can't seem to find a jam session that does standards that I can play my bass guitar at. Pretty much all the jazz jam sessions I've been to just want upright. I guess what my question is do you know of any Jazz Jam Sessions that are bassguitar friendly? Also, did you have a hard time finding ways to make the bass guitar fit into Jazz scene? Just to sum it all up, sometimes I really want to play standards on my bassguitar with people instead of by myself.
