Hi all, So I have been playing in this big band over the summer in Ottawa as a part time, fun, side thing other than my job. (After playing marches ALLL day, it is nice to play outside the box). One of the trumpet players suggested to me that I could very well play in some LA session recordings. Then it donned on me: How the hell would I make any contacts like that. I am from Nova Scotia Canada and go to school in New Brunswick. I have absolutley NO money to move out to a place like LA and nobody reallys knows who I am. I guess what I am asking is: How does one make contacts in that area and how could I start getting known? Thanks for any advice - I am always impressed by peoples experteese on this forum.
