a while ago there was an interesting site that seemed to log the whereabouts of ljp members on the globe. i forget the name of it.  
at any rate i am curious if any one was ever able to make any conclusions as to where the majority of ljp memberw are from.  for example although ljp has members from many country's it seems to me the majority are from the usa.. am i right or wrong?  and then from the usa it has always seemed to me that there are more here from the west coast than from the east coast... am i right or am i wrong?

i just moved to dallas tx. do any of y'all know any good jazz pianists to check out or good jazz teachers in the dallas/ft.woth area?
dallas tx
according to today's frapper map, there seems to be the highest concentration of ljpers in the northeast of america.

strung fairly evenly from new york city to chicago illinois with notable points southwards (memphis et al).

next comes western europe with england running tops and the germanic languages a close second.

and then noteworthy are australia and many asian rim members.
areas of the world that have few or no ljp members may be explained away by either relative population density, and others relative to local cultural interest in jazz piano.
and only 20% of the world has access to the internet.
also it is a 'dot.com' site, therefore american, and english speaking.  other countries, including english speaking ones, may have a bias toward local domains.
jazzvirtuoso, i live in dallas too.

if you care to reveal yourself you can contact at me at
west babylon long island ny
jemez springs, nm
