    Default Jazz!

    is anyone here into jazz?
    i am a huge jazz fan, especially bebop from the 50s and 60s. john coltrane and charles mingus are my jazz idols. but i love jazz, and lots of jazz from other times as well.

    so, any jazz fans?

    if you are a fan of jazz, check out this website:

    Yes I'm a big fan of Jazz. I especially like Gypsy-style Jazz, with the likes of Django Reinhardt:

    Here's one Paris Combo song performed in this style as well:

    django is great! you probably have listened to stephane grappelli's solo work also, that he produced after the hot club of france. grappelli is such a great violinst, but i love the raw emotion that django has in his guitar playing.

    here is a great moden gypsy guitarist, Jimmy Rosenberg:

    and when he was "younger" :

    here is a great video of John Coltrane in 1963, playing with McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones. i love the passion and emotion that john has in this video.

    I absolutely love Jazz. One of my most favorite Jazz groups is a New Age jazz group called Shadowfax.

    My favorite Jazz artist is by far Miles Davis. I listen to 'Kind of Blue' a lot when I'm working on homework and it really brings me into a concentrated and focused mind.

    To me, Jazz is the absolute freedom and release to be myself. I playt trumpet in my High School Jazz band, and improvising solos and messing around with what sounds and feels good is one of the greatest feelings ever.

    I love acid jazz.

    I have a CD called PsychefunkaJazz, and it sounds a bit like slow mellow riming, not rapping, but it's really smooth.

    I love Stevie Wonder, too. He's probably one of my all time favorite musicians.

    Kind of Blue is definitely Miles' best album! i like Bitches Brew, but i really love his albums from the late 50s and early 60s, like Kind of Blue, Milestones, and Blue Haze.
