Sound Ideas #86 - A Trio of Suites
Jazz tends to be a single songform or musical composition that stands alone. It's the improvisational framework for what ensues. However, this does not mean that jazz is bereft of longer, more structured form. In this hour, we will explore jazz in suite form, not the lip smackin' kind, but the finger poppin' variety.
