GenJam's back and looking for musicians to sit in! GenJam, the Genetic Jammer, is an intelligent software agent that improvises jazz in real time by listening to humans improvise and breeding what it hears with its own ideas to generate spontaneous improvisations on straight-up jazz tunes. If you're a jazzer, bring your ax and sit in with GenJam. If you're a guitar or keyboard player, we'll have gear set up for you. If you're a trumpet player, you can borrow my pocket trumpet. If you just want to listen to some nice tunes, you can hang out and maybe train you're own GenJam soloist.
