    I mentioned the Four Freshmen but failed to give a sample.
    Here it is (I reckon its jazz)

    Excellent John. Jazz for sure. A quick count tells me I have 4 Freshmen CD'S. Their harmonies sometimes recall the sound of the Stan Kenton Band in places. IMO they were the best at what they did.

    Stanley Jordan is very talented, I don't own any of his music, it's not my style. I enjoyed the piece though, is it jazz? Not enough for me IMO.

    What about the GREAT Jack Teagarden? Not only a brilliant vocalist, but one of the best ever in my book on trombone?

    OOOps!

    Posted the above in the wrong thread methinks!!! Sorry, well it was VERY late at night when I sent it!! Big T is one of my very top favourites, but I can't think which thread I was relying to!

    Please excuse me everybody.

    Does not matter Eric. Mention JT around here and a lot of us drop to our knees. HE's THE MAN. Great player. Great vocalist.

    I would class this as jazz. It's just that this genre is so wide that it's difficult to draw a "do not cross" line in the sand.
