Fingernails manipulating a chalkboard, that is what jazz is to me.

I heard Wynton got his first horn from Al Hirt.

http://www.wyntonmarsalis.net/main1.html has some soundtracks

One of the few cross-over artists that is able to stand tall in both classical and jazz worlds.

Brother Branford not bad either.

I saw him (Dave) play it live when I was in college ... in the 60's ... awesome experience.

I've seen him three times in the last 4 years.

Once at the Detroit jazz and blues festival in the pouring rain.

Once at a local Ann Arbor church (!) along with their choir which performed his original composition of a Christmas mass. Very beautiful and intimate.

Once at a Uof M musical Society event where he played with a bunch of other people in turn.

The guy is nearing 90 and is really rather unsteady on his feet, and he speaks really slowly (great wit, though), but his hands are still utter magic on the piano.

It's been a great privilage to see him so many times.

You were speaking of chemicals and romance recently and I agree or it would not be called chemistry. (With pheromoans the most important, IMHO). IMHO chemicals also play an important role in music likes and dislikes, and in everything pertaining to human life.

I'm short a chem or two, therefore, I don't like jazz. :laugh:

We need more smilies.
Yes, you do know. Your opera analogy is a classic. Some modern classical music is hideous and will go down with history.

Brubeck
Saw Dave`s quartet when it toured Oz way-back.I was torn between Brubeck`s piano and Paul Desmond`s sax. Which to learn? Piano-alto sax? Horn man or ivory-tinkler? Eventually, I took the plunge and became---an axe-man.:D

Re: Brubeck

the result probably would not be well received accordian to conventional thinking

Re: Joe Zawinul avatar
I did, I mean Joe did write Mercy3. Cannonball Adderly is also one of my favourites. I have some brilliant live stuff of his. He talks to the crowd like a true gentleman, which is something considering most musicians don't even try.

Found a vesion of my fav on the web
Charles Mingus - Hora Decubitus

http://www.wfmu.org/playlists/shows/17367

The above page isn't indexed to the individual tunes, so it takes a bit of work to get there. The tune starts at 0:57:56.

Take that back - Here's a direct link to the RealAudio version:
http://www.wfmu.org/listen.ram?show=17367&archive=24395&starttime=0:57:56

It's currently available as both RealAudio and MP3. The MP3 version may have to buffer from the begining before you can hear it.

The RealAudio versions are perminent - The MP3 versions are not.

In general, I thought it was a wonderful show. As in, "to my tastes".

Moose

Footnote by edit:

Here's my overall favorite tune (not jazz)
Richard & Linda Thompson - Walking On A Wire
http://www.wfmu.org/listen.ram?show=1996&starttime=1:30:12

and a cover version
Knots & Crosses - Walking On A Wire
http://www.wfmu.org/listen.ram?show=13756&starttime=0:22:24

Intelligent design in jazz?
I posted the following here.

To what degree are "information" and "design" equivalent?

Now, performing a written out piece certainly contains intelligent design and information, they being the harmonic and melodic structure.

But, then comes the improvised solo(s), or perhaps even more extreme, pieces that are entirely so called "free improvisations".

Point of reference: Someone once transcribed John Coltrane's solo from "Blue Trane", and presented it to him to play. He tried to and failed, saying that it was too hard. Yet he performed it in the first place. Did he have "intelligent design" in the creation of the solo? I say, certainly - He had the ability to do and apply design in ways that other jazz musicians were not (and still are not?) capable of doing.

Added by edit: Shameless plug of the audio links I put in message 28.

Remember Triple-Z Jazzz?
I'm thinking Spyro-Gyra and Weather Report (Birdland is a big favorite even after all these years).

Jazz has never been my absolute favorite genre of music but there are a few artists I always enjoy hearing: Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong of course, but also Miles Davis, Wynton Marsalis, Billie Holiday and others.
