Sound Ideas #92 - Fresh Sounds
The jazz portfolio is a vast one with contributions from a century of performance and recording. Every once in a while someone "in the know" will make the proclamation that jazz is dead, and that everything there is to be done has been done. I beg to differ, as jazz or "social music", Miles' prefered moniker, will never run out of something new to say as long as there is the human experience on which it is based. In this hour we will listen to a few recent recordings, all representing the last 1% of jazz history to date. As you will hear, there is still plenty to "talk" about.
