Sound Ideas #98 - Taking the Stand and Taking Charge
Jazz paints on a broad canvas with a variety of sounds and textures. Some are cool, others hot; some linger in the background, others demand the foreground. In this hour we'll listen to music where the musicians confidently embrace their performance by taking the stand and taking charge. This is not music that can be comfortably left to the background; this music demands that you focus and listen to it. It's OK, it'll be a rewarding experience.
