"Learning about jazz On a long thread last month regarding jazz recordings, I made a number of posts. Rather than try to recap my comments, let me quickly offer than I have been an avid jazz enthusiast since high school (late 1950's), and have tau...

"I'm a little late to the party here and in "you got to show me" thread but would agree with many of the "live and let live" posts." Yes, you are late, but that doesn't matter. But that doesn't explain your comment above. You've jumped on board t...

Coltrane: Actually yes, you did make a blatent attemp at dweedling. So now we have established that you are capable of self denial and that I am capable of being a big prick. Dekay: Man, your comments suggest you to be a serious mind reader. It a...

"I wish we had a lot more about the individuals and what influenced them musically. I've watched the entire series. I suspect you'll receive a lot more of what you might be looking for in the later episodes. 9 and 10 are a must see. "If you have...

"Mama let that boy play some rock and roll, jazz is much too crazy, he can play it when he's old..." Doucet from "The Deuce is Loose" So is that what drove Parker and Coltrane, two of the most influential musicians ever to pick up an instrument, ...

"The best jazz musicians I ever met all had classical training and there is no question that classical music IS the most technically challenging. Show me any jazz musician who can compose or play counterpoint like Bach. Jazz musicians are imitator...

Hiwave: Bach was a jazzman, you should know that! He improvised as much or more than any classical player. It doesn't hurt to have a classical training, but it certainly is, and has never been a prerequisite to play jazz. Heck, Wes Montgomery, pro... 
Ken Burns' JAZZ starts Monday on PBS!
I've encountered at least 2 erroneous comments regarding this series. First, Brubeck IS represented in the series. Episode 9 in fact. Brubeck IS interviewed and provides comments about how TAKE FIVE evolved, etc. Second, the series DOES NOT conc...

Dekay: I do not assume, nor have I commented on anyone's level of education. People can listen to whomever and whatever they choose. However, if someone suggests that jazz is nothing more than jerky music, then perhaps, just perhaps that warrants ... 
Rock? money down the drain?
Tell me Eldragon, how does jazz jerk around? This should be good. Are you one of those classical snobs that play classical piano and think reading classical manuscripts some 2, 3, 400 years old is superior to jazz music? Or have you even spent eno... 
Ken Burns' JAZZ starts Monday on PBS!
You can OSTERICHSIZE your head into the sand as much as you want to, but the facts are facts. In condensed form they are: Slavery produced slaves, these slaves produced the BLUES, the BLUES evolved into JAZZ. Rock and roll came from JAZZ. No Jaz... 
Ken Burns' JAZZ starts Monday on PBS!
Ellington IS one of the greatest composers that ever lived. If you do your history, and actually do some study you'll come to that realization too! This documentary will be a starting point for many. It merely scratches the surface, but ANYTHING t... 
Ken Burns' JAZZ starts Monday on PBS!
You'll need to view episode 9 to see the Brubeck coverage and the entire West Coast jazz scene. I don't expect any single documentary to be the be all end all of anything. It's merely entertainment, and if this documentary inspires one kid to pick...

Sellers Obligation To Respond
Luc, I empathize with the frustration that prompted you to begin this thread. It's easy to see from some of the responses that sellers are equally frustrated as well. Can't we all just get along? Seriously though...I've been a member of AudioGon s...
