being a jazz organist, i've found looping and jazz to be quite 
harmonious. i've been incorporating ethereal looping into jazz 
standards for years now.

Pat Martino  ... John Abercrombie ... those guys played with hella 
organists. John is on 3 amazing Dr Lonnie Smith albums (not to mention 
the ECM stuff with Dan Wall), and Martino used to play with Trudy Pitts 
and Jack McDuff.

i would recommend playing jazz because you like it though, not just to 
loop. that's kind of like a saxophonist playing jazz just because they 
want to play a lot of notes.

if you just want gigs a wedding band would pay much better, and involve 
more liquor.
