Let's talk about Jazz music.
English

So jazz fans what are your favourite albums and songs? Mine all time favourite jazz song is Orange-colored sky by Nat King Cole. My favourite all time jazz album is the jazz fusion album Head hunters by Herbie Hancock. Fantastic stuff for an album only containing four songs.  

Sony 808 ES Amplifer, PSB imagine B bookshelf speakers, Pro-ject debut carbon turntable, Audiolab 8200 CD player, Pioneer N-50 streamer, Revox B77 1/2 reel to reel player, Sennheiser Momentun headphones and some Atlas cables.

Like all music genres there's some great Jazz and others that are well.... pants.

Current favs at the mo are Count Basie, early Ray Charles, Jools Holland, Courtney Pine and Jamie Cullum.

Miles Davis - Sketches Of Spain

Definitely Jazz, and definitely great.

Clearly you don't know what Jazz is.

Holland's early solo stuff is very Jazz-fusion. Likewise, as is early Charles.

Sorry, I forgot, you know everything about everything, and I know nothing about anything, especially music.

How I ever got a job in a record shop is a miracle, and of course, then being employed in a music export company as a music buyer was a ridiculous decision by my employers. "Give the job to that man who sells nappies from a van, he's knows much more than me about music" I shouted, but they just wouldn't listen. "He likes Level 42, he must know more than me about jazz", but still my efforts were in vain, and I had to take the job.

Ray Charles crossed many genres, including Jazz, but he was not a Jazz artist. He was fuffing brilliant, but he was NOT a Jazz artist.

Jools Holland plays boogie woogie, no matter what the style of music he is accompanying, Jools Holland plays boogie woogie. I like him, but he's limited, and he is NOT a jazz musician.

Let's face it anyone can get a job in a record shop. They usually employ spotty, clueless little oiks. One of my girlfriends way back when worked in the record dept. at Woolworth and she didn't know anything about music, apart the charts at the time.

If you worked for a exporter you should know that all music is FUSION. By that any so-called genre/artist draws from other styles. Could give you loads of examples but somehow it'll fall on deaf ears... and you'll give me cyber earache.

As usual you are fEDITEDing up someones elses thread.

Nightie night.

The partnering performance to 'Sinatra At The Sands' (but without Sinatra).

Both superb.

I have the best of Louis Armstrong featuring the Duke Ellington orchestra and Ella Fitzgerald sings the Duke Ellington songbook albums and their both ace so I should try hunt down Duke Ellington & John Coltrane self-titled album because that would probably be ace too.

You and PP are acting like an old married couple. I think you both need to rent a hotel room together to get out the feelings you both have for each other. Your both feel better about each other in the morning if you do.
