Welcome to the Jazz Lounge
« on: May 22, 2015, 09:27:33 PM »
While not strictly classical, many would argue that jazz is a genre of serious and art music. GMG will trial this board for discussion of all things jazz. If well-used, it will stay. If it withers, it may die. Happy to take comments. Mods, feel free to move relevant posts to this board.

Cheers
Rob

Nice! I just went to a jazz club for dinner last night, so it is good timing.

Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach
