Starting a jazz collection is something every well-rounded music listener considers. Unfortunately, most folks have trouble getting started because they don't know where to begin. Do you start chronologically with Louis Armstrong or do you jump right into the new stuffhow about the '50's and '60's? Everyone is different, so where you begin will depend a lot on your musical taste.
We hope the information on this page provides you with some insight on how to build your CD (or download) collection as well as discover the essentials about the music, its players and its rich history.
There's a lot of great music out there. Take your time and have fun exploring the world of jazz!
Jazz is NOT exactly rocket science, you know.
Jazz is creative, spontaneous, lively, energetic, romantic, boisterous and playful... It is incredible driving music and whimsical dinner accompaniment. Jazz is the ultimate romantic encounter companion...
It is the sort of music that crawls inside you slowly and captures a place in your heart normally reserved for romance and passion...It is a burning glow of seduction and a life-long journey of discovery...
I was first exposed to jazz at the age of seven. I used to listen to Miles Davis and Wes Montgomery all the time. My late dad was a violinist and my sister was a music teacher so there was always (jazz) music playing in our home
I was first exposed to jazz at the age of seven. I used to listen to Miles Davis and Wes Montgomery all the time. My late dad was a violinist and my sister was a music teacher so there was always (jazz) music playing in our home. I later went to study Jazz guitar at various institutions internationally. My favourite was Trinity College of Music in London. I met a few life long friends there.
Jazz is a way of life and I would certainly not change it for anything or anyone. Music is Happiness So, Let it Play... Play... Play.
