Welcome to our ALL(most)JAZZ Blogadoodlee-dee-doo-dee!
We're glad to have you visit!
As jazz aficionados, we're eager to hear from you about your tips, your feedback and, of course, if you'd like us to gig for you.
In this blog, we'll try to update you on jazz news, jazz notes and information on vocal jazz and jazz, in general.
Today's offering is this site for students of jazz: FreeJazzLessons.com
And to round out your summer reading list, check out this excellent title:
From Jakob Baekgaard's review:
"...there should be no doubt that Giving Birth to Sound: Women in Creative Music is a beautiful and necessary book that is filled with wisdom about music and life. The reader is encouraged to seek out the music of these strong individuals who work in many different genres. However, there is a bias towards improvised music. The list of musicians is long and there will be names that will be familiar to the dedicated listener, for instance, many followers of the ECM-label will know the pianist Marilyn Crispell, but there will also be many new musical discoveries. It is a generous and life-affirming book, a joyful and intellectually rewarding rewriting of history into herstory and like all the other jazz books on the excellent imprint Buddy's Knife, it is a true labor of love."
Jazz & Life:
Life is a lot like jazz... it's best when you improvise. - George Gershwin
