Guitarist looking for bassist, other players for jazz (North Central)

I am a long-time pro player, retirement age, who is looking for other players, bass most importantly, but also keys or another guitarist, someone who can trade off comping. I am largely jazz-based, although I have pretty broad interests and have played lots of styles- pop, blues, and have acquired an interest in country, although I'm just starting with it. When I say "jazz", I mean primarily standards, bebop or straight-ahead-based jazz. I don't want to play only jazz, but I do want to play it, so guys who either know standards or can read them out of the Real Book or from charts are highly valued. But I also play a lot of other genres, rock, pop, folk, and some country, although I'm not a real country player- at least not yet. It's a work in progress : ) I'm interested in playing, just to play, but looking down the road I'd also be interested in gigging again with the right player or players. Again, bass is king : ) I'm not ready for drummers or singers (unless you also accompany) or horn players yet until I find a bassist. Please reply here if interested with a description of your musical skills, background, experience, etc. If you just say "gimme a call", I probably won't.
