Jazz

Jazz is a musical art form which originated around the beginning of the 20th century in Black communities in the Southern United States from a confluence of African and European music traditions. The style’s West African pedigree is evident in its use of blue notes, call-and-response, improvisation, polyrhythms, syncopation, and the swung note of ragtime.

    Hey I started a new group for music fanatics, the focus is going to be different than the ExMF and the frosty paradigm. It's a bit of an experiment but if a bunch of people get in it could be cool. Join if you are interested. I want this group to become a center for music discussion on Lastfm (even though it's metal centered, other genres are more than welcome to be discussed.) Cheers! http://www.last.fm/group/Unholy+Cult+of+the+Appraised+and+Damned

    New SHSK'H Netlabel release - Made in Blue : Jody Pou at http://www.shskh.com/www/ Jazz and Baroque music have a lot in common. Recitatives, ornamentation, standard melodies meant to be embellished... to name a few. The many voices of singer, Jody Pou, bring them together in this unusually creative album, recorded by the equally creative netlabel, shskh.com.
