Both of these guys can and have set in and mixed it up very capably with jazz musicians, but want us all to know that this is not the focus of their recent releases. New York was the epicenter of a fusion of the three great fads of the time: syncopated orchestras, ragtime and blues. Since cornetist Buddy Bolden (the first famous musician to be considered a jazz player) formed his band in 1895, one can use that year as a symbolic birthdate for jazz. Who was Duke Ellington's first and long time drummer?

Hasaan was the great influence on Trane’s melodic concept." This piece is so difficult, I have tried to rewrite the chart so many times so musicians could read it and make sense out of it! Throughout the 1920s, jazz music evolved into an integral part of American popular culture. Shifting gears after retiring as Chief of Police in 2010, the versatile composer-musician has been sharing his passion for soulful urban jazz as an independent recording artist, starting with his 2015 full-length debut LOVE ME AGAIN.

If you are a lover of the bass, jazzfusion, and Holdsworthian guitar, Al Garcia has a cd for you to check out..." "Impeccable bass, soaring guitar, lush synth tones, ethnic percussion, and tasty drumming can all be found on Al Garcia's solo release Make It So. James was a local bandleader, so instruments were made available to the children. Something that set early jazz apart was improvisation-either solo or as a group. Works for: POP & LatinPOP On disk 15 (Super Styles of the SuperStars), Hall of Fame and Top40 should be expected, and Phil and Don didn't let us down with 27 Top40 hits and more on the Country charts.

RKO's first major production was the stage adaptation Rio Rita (1929), one of the first musical spectaculars (filmed in black and white with one rare Technicolor sequence). The Vertu CD is amazing, especially coming out in these times when instrumental music could definitely use a bit of a kick back into diversity. Perfect for many tunes from Lester Lannin to Niel Diamond to Willie Nelson. Early stars included other New Orleans musicians like King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton, a Creole musician who, in the early 1920's, recorded over a hundred of his own and other's Jazz tunes.

I consider “electronic” to be a wider field than “techno.” Smooth Jazz is the Fusion concept taken to its ultimate, Xanax influenced, extreme. An excellent introduction to this school can be found on the Musea compilation Enneade. The music, known as swing, was fast, lively and fun to dance to; it kept America’s spirits high in the face of poverty and devastation. Handy, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey…these are legendary musicians of the early 20th century.

Gilberto's initial releases, and the 1959 film Black Orpheus, achieved significant popularity in Latin America; this spread to North America via visiting American jazz musicians.

Dixieland, a style that overlaps with New Orleans jazz and classic jazz, has also been called "Chicago jazz" because it developed to an extent in Chicago in the 1920's. Covers both white and black gospel music traditions. I don't mind telling you that I am doing some serious mult-tasking at the moment: -- I am in the middle of writing a piece on legendary NYC communicator, Hal Jackson -- I am listening to the new Ryan Shaw album "Real Love" (for about the 10th time, since November 2011) By now I am certain that you have heard about Ryan Shaw's latest release: Real Love?

Some early practitioners include Keith Jarret and Jan Garbarek. S., it’s no surprise that jazz occupies a unique place in the landscape of American music. Jazz, musical form, often improvisational, developed by African Americans and influenced by both European harmonic structure and African rhythms. As a matter of fact, I just hit that replay button for it a few moments ago (and no dj/tastemaker/twitter feed/magazine/tv show/website/blog/etc. had to convince me to do so) You got me goin' [Stoned] Hey, hey [Out of my mind] You got me goin' [Stoned] Hey, hey [Out of my mind] You got me goin' [Stoned] Hey, hey [Out of my mind] You got me goin' [Stoned] Hey, hey [Out of my mind] You got me goin' [Stoned] Hey, hey [Out of my mind] NOTE: When I first heard this song I was broke, I loved it so much, found it so utterly compelling, that I taped it off of AM radio.
