    Im in NY for the summer... Where would you recommend to hang out for jams, good music to listen to? I saw and met you in Manchester at Bass day 2 or 3 years ago, my ex girlfriend had a big afro. Saw you and Oli the next night at a gig too at that jazzclub..

    Good fun.

    the 55bar is my spot in NYC.... I hang there all the time. it's on christopher street between 6th and 7th ave's.

    I'm not too sure about jam sessions... I haven't been in that scene for a really long time. I think there's still one at small's jazz club which is pretty close to the 55bar. The best thing to do is to pick up a copy of the "village voice" which has all the listings for everything going on in the city, and it's FREE!
