- Man! I sure do appreciate your comments. I was listening to jazz back when
I was 9 years old. Don't give up on today's music...there is some great
stuff out there in Hip-Hop and even Country. BTW: I recommend listening to
early Herbie Hancock; especially his Crossings album. It was so bold and
way out there, and yet, it was jazz; inspired by Miles Davis.
- Exquisite in every way.
- You're probably being too hard on yourself.
- @enoilgag1 I don't play the sax,you don't have to to know he is the best
- Bird could play some nice restrained melodic lines unlike some of his would
be lattter day imitators. Gershwin's inspiration for this was obviously
that well known 8 bar, St James Infirmary.
- i play the saxophone too and i completely agree charlie parker is the best
