Yeah... it's because it used to steal my lunch money and break my glasses. :cry:

No, actually I like the sound of jazz, even the chaos. Yeah, I'm a classical music girl, but a MODERN classical music girl - dissonant and even atonal classical music that makes people run away screaming. But anyway, people just talk about jazz so, um, snobbily and superiorly. Kind of like how people talk about hip hop too. :-? I just feel like "real" jazz connaisseurs are sneering at me, looking down their noses at me because I don't know as much as they do. (Kind of like hip hop heads at Elements. :-? )


So... John Cage? That 4:33 is mad.

Yup. Music shouldn't be studied, music should be enjoyed. Who cares how many records you've heard, or whether you know what Diamond D had for his breakfast before he made Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop.

Concierto De Aranjuez....is definitive red wine music. People say this song about a bullfighter...that's bullshit. I think this song is about how the Moors must have felt when the Crusades ended.

BTW...Jazz ain't dead, you know. The greats STILL live.

Did anybody pickup Madlib's dedication to Weldon Irvine? I haven't heard any of his music, but according to WaxPoetics
Image(the greatest HipHop magazine ever) his album covers were art in themselves....

...and ironically, there is a great article about Image

I didn't know there was a jazz version of it. It was originally written for guitar and orchestra, by Joachin Rodrigo. (Now it's my turn to sneer 8) ). It's funny how you described it, because I went to a concert of it with Christopher Parkening (famous classical guitarist) and they talked about how EVERYONE who listens to it imagines different emotions to go along with it. Some see it as a piece about love, some about grief... To me it sounds like a despairing love song.

....despairing love song. How would you know?!

By the way, what is "classical guitar"? I always thought it was a bunch of cats playing "Green Sleeves" in pompous hats and white stockings. Or maybe the theme music to the Vega stage of Street Fighter 2.


Go pick up the album in the pic or download it. Does the classical version of Concierto have the lingering "Soh" (in choir notation, I don't remember music lettering anymore) kind of flickering in the end? I think it done by Miles, makes the song that much open to interpretation...kind of his way of getting the last laugh...

...Moorish roots (and other African turbulences) make my interpretation what is. Listen to the song, PLEASE! I have to listen to the classical version again, but the trumpet solo....sounds like the kind of song one intentionally fathoms life to. A total Leaving Las Vegas vibe....maybe not to that extreme, but certainly red wine.


Snob.

Snob yourself. 8) I do have that album, and it's one of my FAVORITES. Classical guitar, by the way, is just like any other instrument. (Like classical piano as opposed to jazz piano, etc., you know).

"Soh"? :o You use solfege? :o Awesome! Well the concerto has three movements, but the middle one (the adagio) is the most famous. That's the one that people get emotional about. And yes, it has a progression up to one lingering note at the end.

I've heard brass ensemble versions of it (like in the film "Brassed Off") but never the Miles Davis recording. I'd like to though.

But yes, naturally there are Moorish roots, because it's from Spain!

^^ Those Weldon Irvine covers remind of me of Nas' album covers, with the emphasis on the artist's face.



Just copped:

Donald Byrd -- "The Essential Compilation"

Anyone here seen Kirk Degiorgio Hall of Fame section on his website? Good stuff.

I've been listening to a lot of Herbie Hancock myself & of course Cinematic Orchestra is one of my favorite groups & I love Carl Craig's Jazz projects (Detroit Experiment, Innerzone Orchestra), oh & Bob James & a lot of Jazz Funk. I prefer stuff that's not brass based. I'm just not big on brass instruments, so I prefer stuff centered around synths (that's where Herbie comes in), bass & drums. Not that I can't listen to brass based stuff.

What are your recommendations for a jazz-newbie, like myself. (Artists and albums to check) I'm familiar with Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk, and that's 'bout it.
