Some might see an odd destiny - if not exactly Jerry Garcia's “long strange trip” - in the formation of the 3-year-old Jazz Docs band. Its five members form a sort of Venn diagram - with Ellicott City dentist Hank Fasteau somewhere in the middle - with a complexity approaching the jazz compositions they practice every Wednesday at the Damon Foreman Music Academy in Glenwood. Fasteau on drums and fellow dentist Gary Anderberg on trumpet are joined by Glenwood internal medicine specialist Scott Maurer on bass, retired piano teacher Kathy McGinn of Columbia back on her instrument, and guitarist Damon Foreman of the eponymous music academy on guitar.

Bluegrass music has finally found a place in Baltimore where musicians, young or old, experienced or beginners, can come together and partake in a Sunday afternoon jam session once a month. The Second Sunday Social, a bluegrass pickin' party at the 8x10, started four months ago as a way to showcase the musical genre and give local musicians a place to learn more about it. "The 8x10 really wanted to have bluegrass on the calendar, but bluegrass music is not very economical for the club," said Bryan Shupe, owner of the 8x10 since 2005.

Anyone sharing my New Year's resolution to enjoy life more in 2008 might find this goal easy to pursue at 49 West Coffeehouse, Winebar & Gallery in Annapolis. Having visited the cafe twice last year and experienced its ambience while enjoying the classic jazz offered in the back room, I returned Jan. 2 and Jan. 9 to find the atmosphere even more glowing. A longtime fan of Joe Byrd and pianist Jim Lester, I found their music Jan. 2 as elegant as I remembered, with the added distinction of Bill McHenry on drums.

ABOUT 80 FRIENDS gathered Wednesday night in Little Baker Chapel at McDaniel College to celebrate the life of Pete Alexander, a 1967 graduate of Western Maryland College whose life as a musician, cabdriver, teacher and in other people-oriented careers made him a familiar face in many places. Alexander died June 30 after suffering a heart attack at age 58. He was living in Vermont, but when news of his death reached Westminster, friends and colleagues sent a flurry of e-mails to organize a late-night jam session in his honor.

Rousing guitar, peppy dancing and animated singing are turning quiet Friday afternoons at the South Carroll Senior Center into lively jam sessions. A group of amateur musicians, whose numbers expand and shrink weekly, puts on the country music show at the Sykesville center. Within minutes of setup, the unnamed and unrehearsed band has the crowd moving to the beat. "Can you do `Crazy' like Patsy Cline?" an audience member requested on a recent Friday. John Smith, 62, the lead singer and a self-taught guitarist with a limited repertoire, doesn't know the right chords and quickly polled his three bandmates.

Up to this point in their high school careers, many of the students in the Glenelg Jazz Ensemble have followed a musical path strikingly similar to that of accomplished Jazz trumpeter Alex Pope Norris. Tonight, they will experience firsthand where that familiar path can lead, when Norris returns to Howard County as guest soloist at the ensemble's benefit concert under the direction of Barry Enzman, Glenelg High School's director of bands, at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium. Norris, 39, started playing the trumpet at what was then Dasher Green Elementary School, stuck with it at Owen Brown Middle School, and continued to play at Hammond High.

Dennis Chambers, drummer extraordinaire and Grammy-nominated child of East Baltimore, is on the phone for a few precious minutes during a brief stay with the home folks before the road claims him again. "It takes a toll," he said. "It all depends on who I'm with. Sometimes you're with a bunch of guys who have some personalities and it can be sort of a drag." Right now, he's touring with guitarist Mike Stern, whose album Voices -- on which Chambers played drums -- has been nominated for best contemporary jazz album by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

If you've ever compared the taste of good homemade jam with its commercial counterpart, you can appreciate how much select ingredients and small-batch cooking contribute to the quality of the finished product. Some of the best fruits for homemade jam are tart apples, tart blackberries, cranberries, plums and red currants, which are high in pectin and acid. (Low-pectin fruits, such as strawberries, cherries, peaches and raspberries, require commercial pectins to give them enough body.) Strictly defined, jam is the result of cooking fruits with sugar to preserve them until the mixture thickens to a spreadable consistency.
