I feel privileged to have fallen in love with an eloquent phenomenon called Jazz. While the rest of the world classifies Jazz as a mere genre of music, I view it as a lifestyle. Assuming I haven’t made it quite evident, this is what Jazz does to you: it transforms your love into a lifestyle. If you wish to experience the blessings of pure harmony and the beauty of sheer spontaneity, turn to the world of Jazz and experience a perfect sync with true romance. The birthplace of this marvelous phenomenon is New Orleans, Southern United States. It achieved mainstream popularity during the 1920s, which was also referred to as “The Jazz Age”. The man I consider to be the prophet of Jazz music, Miles Davis said “You can tell the history of Jazz in four words: Louis Armstrong. Charlie Parker.” Being a firm believer of “learn it yourself”, I would suggest two playlists as a great place to start your interaction with Jazz.
1. Autumn leaves Cannonball Adderley and Miles Davis 2. Take five Dave Brubeck 3. Yardbird suite Charlie Parker 4. A kiss to build a dream on Louis Armstrong 5. Feeling good Nina Simone 6. The girl from Ipanema Astrud Gilberto & Stan Getz 7. My funny valentine Chet Baker 8. Nancy John Coltrane 9. Let’s do it Ella Fitzgerald 10.
