Re: Is Jazz coming back?
everything is going these days, are my feelings correct?
The knights templar state it dosent really move it remains static.Its just perceptions from young people who are trying to dig it.Art is Art no matter what it is.The problem is education of the masses,something that is a problem with everything not just jazz.
For example read this forum, under jazz saxophone, there is little or nothing to do with jazz.See how the character kenny Gee gets most attention who in the knights view cant play and certainly does not play jazz. So quality has to be understood by the minority sadly.
In conclusion when jazz is being pushed then all other forms of music and development will follow.Social ,economic factors play their part,such as smashing all exsisting values and rebelious youth.Sadly the youth of today do not understand individuality,creative rebellious action.But for a select band in the world who live , breath, believe jazz, and fight for it all the way.(Bird lives)
