    Bill Bennett, the owner of New York City's Off Wall Street Jam has passed away as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash.

    "The Jam" got me back into music after years of stagnation. It's a place where anyone who had a desire to play music could go and find like-minded musicians to play with. Bill was a young man; it's really very sad news.

  2. I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, Tappel. :(

    May he rest in peace.

    A student of mine that lives up there part-time (in Brooklyn) was a regular participant in the Off Wall Street Jam, and he complained constantly about the lack of such an organization/group of folks in our area (Orlando).

    This really sucks.
