    A strange question I know,but last night I was listening to Jazz and I thought ''who will get into playing the instruments?'' I only know one young person[below 40] that actually plays the drums in a jazz band.And he told me he has never met anyone younger than himself that is into playing Jazz music.

    ODD QUESTION I KNOW

    i know and have known several more people under 25 that were total jazz enthusiasts. usually not in the teen years, but once they get college age, they appreciate it. shit, when i was in high school, i had trouble finding rock drummers, because all the drummers i met wanted to play jazz. there;s just something wrong with where you live.

    Well, this might be the wrong thing to say if you're a 100% jazz purist, but there's still acid jazz and jazzy house...there's hip-hop with elements of jazz in it. People will probabaly just incorporate elements of old genres of music like that into whatever they're playing nowadays, no matter how different it may be from the original form.

    jazz is very much alive. but you gotta be immersed to see it. i do 1-2 gigs weekly. studyied it in university for a couple years, and will continue to listen and play for years, at least i assume i will.

    i cant stand that acid, hiphop, house jazz stuff.
    fucking hate it.
    theres nothing like brubecks take 5 or louis armstrong doing stardust.
    check baker singing "everything happens to me"
    gene krupa, stan getz, glen miller, arti shaw,ella, billie, oh man...dont get me going .

    as far as newer people.. man i know it sounds cheesy but squirrel nut zippers did a decent job, and katherine whalen, the girl singer from said band has a cd called "kathering whalens jazz squad" ..amazing.
    a cross between billie holiday and chet baker.
    chris thomas king has good old blues.

    man fuck the future.

    i say skronk the old stuff thats not going anywhere or changing, love the fresh ideas and inspiration.
    take it to new levels.
    stuff like kenny wheeler, dave douglas, michael cain ( not the actor ), dave holland, peter erskine, pat metheney, mmw, wayne shorter, coltrane, davis, bill frisell, john abercombie, weather report, herbie hancock, chick corea, peacock, tyner, and the millions more big names and small names.

    hey im all for those guys doing something fresh, im just saying im not feeling it too much.
    the old stuff had something completely humble and exiting about it. and nothing since has had the same feeling.

    Good to see some fans of Jazz!

    I also cant stand acid jazz type stuff.I think Jazz has always been something you have to have inside knowledge of to understand.I just think that it is one of the most underatted[i hope it stays that way] form of music.

    My oldest freinds Dad is a jazz critic so the music has always been around me since I was about 1 year old.
