Flollowing up from my thread on female jazz singers
lets hear some of the top males.
If we move alphabetically its got to start with Louis.
followed by Chet Baker...
Is there such a thing?
I think yes, after listening to the following track.
I hope Forum members will give their own ideas on the subject.
For me Swing is an important variation of "Jazz" and I start this new thread hoping that the Forum agrees.
Anyway I will start the ball rolling with a track by one of the Greats;
While posting tracks from my own recent purchases under the section on "Recent CD Purchases" it occurred to me that perhaps a whole new thread could perhaps be allocated for this purpose so here I am giving it a try.
(I must admit at this point that I only know how to obtain such tracks is...
Up to now my problem has been confined to pasting some jazz.
Posting Louis worked as did the john wilson orch. But trying to paste for example; -
I will try to paste more Jazz onto this thread to try and highlight what is going wrong, so please bear with me for...
My idea is play tracks by great jazz guitarists that may or may not be familiar to Forum members.
Everyone please feel free to add your own favourites.
To open with - a track by Russell Malone.
I suddenly have an unstopable urge to start a Satchmo
The main purpose is to get those Forum members interested
to post their own favourite Louis track.
I start off with my own alltime favourite "I've got the right to sing the blues"

For me the main instruments which have been utilised from the beginnings of Jazz are:

I would like to hear of a favourite jazz pianist for other Forum members
Since I am pretty ignorant about what is happening in the current Jazz world, it would be great to hear favourite up-to date music from others in our Jazz Forum.
As a start I give you this http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=XwjFKXVi2fw
I hope that forum members will look for and offer tracks from a wide range of the World's Countries.
I will start things rolling with some jazz from Italy.
It seems to me, (and obviously others may disagree), that many Jazz Forum posters tend to limit their entries to jazz musicians who are well known.
I would like posters to this thread to expose their interest in lesser well-known musicians and wherever possible to link examples of their music...
I was discussing the French Horn as a jazz instrument and Mat suggested I start a new thread about unusual jazz instruments.
Well here goes.
I will start things going by giving a short spiel on what I consider to be an
unusual musical instrument to be used in Jazz. I would hope for some lively...
I can't remember if this has ever been a thread in my time with the Forum (from Jan 2010), but here goes.
Who would be your top rated 6 female jazz singers during the history of jazz.
Off the top of my head here are mine;-
I cant get any of my painting photos to upload (an error with the file I'm told) and the email address you send me bounces.
Can you make a suggestion or should I just give up?
