Jazz is the art of storytelling, but to fully understand what's being said, you need to speak the language. Often, the jazz performer will take a pointed view, whether in melody, improv, or lyric and lay it on the listener. In this hour, we will sample some snarky stuff, that is jazz with an attitude. Dig the sounds and see if you pick up on the whole story.
