Jazz is a musical style that originated at the beginning of the 20th century in black communities in the Southern United States. It was born out of a mix of African and European music traditions. Its African pedigree is evident in its use of blue notes, improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation and the swung note.[1] From its early development until the present day, jazz has also incorporated elements from American popular music.[2]

As the music has developed and spread around the world it has drawn on many different national, regional and local musical cultures giving rise, since its early 20th century American beginnings, to many distinctive styles: New Orleans jazz dating from the early 1910s, big band swing, Kansas City jazz and Gypsy jazz from the 1930s and 1940s, bebop from the mid-1940s and on down through West Coast jazz, cool jazz, avant-garde jazz, Afro-Cuban jazz, modal jazz, free jazz, Latin jazz in various forms, soul jazz, jazz fusion and jazz rock, smooth jazz, jazz-funk, punk jazz, acid jazz, ethno jazz, jazz rap, cyber jazz, Indo jazz, M-Base, nu jazz and other ways of playing the music.

In a 1988 interview, trombonist J. J. Johnson said, "Jazz is restless. It won't stay put and it never will".

Jazz has to be one of my favorite music styles.

It has a lot of different directions it can go to.

 

Acid Jazz

Swing Jazz

Fusion Jazz

Cool Jazz

 

And many many more.

I often listen to jazz since it calms me down a bit, reliefs stress or sheers me up.

I love almost every jazz style there is, some a bit less than the other one, but i still like it smile.gif

 

A few of my Favorite artist are probably

Nat king cole

Frank Sinatra

Glenn Miller

Benny goodman

 

and a few more smile.gif

They might no sound so jazzy, but they sure are biggrin.gif

 

 

Here are some Videos

 

 

 

Oldies

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Instrumental Jazz

Good to see there are more people who appreciate jazz on these forums. I prefer post-bop/modern creative, but anything goes! Here, perhaps you'll like this (already shared it in the Rate the song above you-thread):

Coltrane, Miles and Mingus are where you wanna start. Probably the easiest three jazz pills to swallow.

 

Mingus' best albums are in my opinion (in chronological order): Pithecanthropus Erectus, The Clown, Mingus Ah Um, The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady with the last one considered by many to be his magnum opus. As for Coltrane I'm partial to My Favorite Things and A Love Supreme but I'm not a huge Coltrane fan.

 

I've also been digging Chet Baker lately, check out Chet Baker Sings.

 

Anyone got any trad recommendations?

Been listening to Roland Kirk's Serenade To A nice personoo. Love it. Got Coltrane's My Favourite Things. Slowly getting in to Jazz. My mates bro and Dad play Jazz for a living and I always enjoyed listening to live Jazz sessions in a bar in my city. Never put in on at home until recently.

I could go into a really long story about this...but I won't. Short version - I heard about these guys from a trustworthy source.

 

South African band that I would have to classify as Jazzy cool.gif .

 

Edit:

Because this is newer stuff I almost feel I need to mention that these are real people playing real instruments. It may sound like it came out of FruityLoops or what-have-ya, but this is real love in each note.

I loved it biggrin.gif

It goes under Acid Jazz i think.

 

I was able to listen to both of them while doing some work and such.

I liked hold on tight a bit better then Wet welly.

 

Thanks for sharing!

He's cool. I nearly got to see him play just before he died. He played a festival I was at but sadly missed him. I only know a few of his songs but I might just get one of his albums now that you mention him.

My dad is a huge fan of him

He went to his last concert before he died, Gill started making some electronic music at the end of his life tough, it isn't as good as his Jazz , but it's pretty well made smile.gif

There's a Japanese Nu-Jazz producer called Jazztronik that's really worth checking out. Some of his stuff touches a little on House but it's mostly electronic Jazz. His album Bon Voyage is pretty much mostly piano though and it's brilliant. Super relaxing. In fact Bon Voyage is kind of a masterpiece in my opinion.
