Richard Roma: No more jazz? Now what are poseurs going to pretend they like in a sad attempt to appear intelligent?

WTF Indeed: Jazz isn't dead. Just like Big Band music isn't dead. They just aren't burning up the charts and being played until 4am anymore. Hell, in a few years Rock n' Roll will be as "dead" as Jazz is.


AC/DC told me rock 'n roll will NEVER die!

theflatline: Thank god my home town New Orleans still exists, and as long as it does jazz will not die.

/and please just say no to european jazz fusion.


The Europeans are some of the only ones bringing innovation to jazz. New Orleans is mostly a museum.

BattleFrenchie28: As someone who's taking a "The History of Jazz" class, I'm getting a kick out of this thread.

/until I realized I still haven't done the 10 page analysis of "The Preacher" by Horace Silver due next Friday
//then I'm not getting much of a kick


I can only imagine that taking a class like that is a bit like a vegan taking a biology class and having to dissect a cat.

No it isn't, but headlines like that one get more clicks.

On another note, marketing is still alive.
