3942Re: [RedHotJazz] When did Jazz die?
- Mar 17, 2007part of the problem is the perception of "old time jazz" as not being 'real'
jazz. I was told by a board member of a local jazz support group that they
"only support real jazz", meaning I don't know what.
That jazz--the bop, cool, fusion, whatever--might not be dead, but it only
has a small life support system, which is really only the players. IMO,
they are styles for the informed, not the casual listener. And, while I
don't claim to be the most talented ear-wise, I have a fairly advanced
ability to hear in the jazz sense. But, I still don't get it.
