Sound Ideas #88 - Swingin' Along Down the Road
Jazz is a broadly encompassing genre tallying eight decades of musical influence and impact. This has resulted in a great deal of latitude in the litmus test that seeks to answer whether a particular performance qualifies as jazz, or something else. A rough guides states the that music must include improvisation, is based upon the blues or American Song form, and generally swing. Two out of three is usually good enough. In this hour we focus on music that hits all three, and swings hard.
