Broke out and spun up Maynard Ferguson-Primal Scream this morning.
Raechel Price has solo jazz albums.
YES! Saw him live too many times to count.
Well along with a gun nut I also happen to be a music teacher and long time jazz lover.
lots of great stuff here.
Here’s a newer recording of Wycliffe Gordon at Cancer Blows with the 1 O’clock Lab Band from North Texas. Unbelievable musicians.
Awesome tune! The One O'Clock lab band at UNT is as good as most pro bands. For a while I got to play with a guitar player who at that time has been a pro for 20+ years and came out of that band.
My all time biggest SUPERHERO!!!!
Only jazz I listen to.
That is some of the best--Vince Guaraldi
My wife pulled up "According to Jim" and has had that on during the quarantine. As you probably know Jim Belushi is a blues musician, and the bass lines on the background music for the show are awesome. There are blues riffs, rock riffs, and jazz riffs. The most common jazz riff is a classic walking bass line that mixes low and high. I immensely enjoy it!
one of my fave bass players is this guy..
As Bella says.. Jazz on a Banjo!
Victor Wooten is awesome!!
The walking bass line I like the best is 1625 with 1/2 step above leading tones.
i wasn't much for playing jazz.. i did give it a try.. the drummer was John King.. and as for being above the leading tone.. that is a saweet way.. i admit, i really fell in love with the blues.. rock is what i started with.. moved to country.. never sat around listened to it.. but there was a lot of it that i really enjoyed playing.. it was fun.. but i have a love for the blues over everything!
Jazz is probably then hardest music to play well. It takes everything I have just to tame the trumpet beast and play passable lead trumpet in a community jazz band. I have to do stuff like this most every day:
Good for you.. thank you so much for sharing! love it my man!
@INTJ Here is a John King
