The definition of improvisational jazz. It encompasses what Jazz is to so many - emotion expressed in musical notes - based on the environment and sounds around the musicians at the time the notes are struck...<br><br><br>
This is what I'm listening to this morning - sometimes, ya just gotta let it happen<br><br><br><div style="text-align:center;"><img alt="" src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/9/9c/MilesDavisKindofBlue.jpg/200px-MilesDavisKindofBlue.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br></div>

Allegri's Miserere on an album entitled "The Tallis Scholars Live in Rome". It is a hauntingly beautiful version. Just superb. It follows Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli.

I'm not listenning to anything, but I have to agree with you on Kind of Blue.<br>
I think that was my first Jazz Album- It was given to me when I was 19- and at the time i didn't fully appreciate Jazz or that album as much as i do now.<br><br>
Miles Davis was an asshole- but he was a musical genius asshole. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I remember when I put Kind of Blue on my playlist for dinner music during my wedding reception...the DJ kept questioning me, and I had to insist that it would be great. It has been a favorite of mine for a long time. After the reception, when we were saying good bye to the DJ, he said he was adding that to his recommended playlist for dinner music because he loved it.

Charlie Parker is my favorite soloist... Oh, and Clifford Brown on trumpet.... Kenny Burrell has a great blues feel to his jazz - but if you've not listened to Grant Green - you're in for a treat...<br><br><br>
Coltrane - I can take him on some songs, but other ones are simply too far out there for me....<br><br><br>
Dizzy G - "A Night In Tunisia" - it's my ring tone...

If y'all should make it to San Diego, we get our fair share of very good live jazz shows. Everything from Latin to bebop to acid <a href="http://smiliesftw.com" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://smiliesftw.com/x/smoke.gif" style="border:0px solid;"></a>

I have to say- I'm on an Oscar Peterson kick at the moment, and a longstanding David Brubeck kick. I am still getting my head around 5/4, 7/4 and 9/8 time <img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"> It sounds amazing though.
