Hey, I never posted in this...



Technically I fell in love with Jazz when I was twelve and went to go see Fantasia 2000. This is really the only thing I remember from the film and it also sparked my fascination with cities, New York to be precise. This twelve minute animation kind of changed my life in many ways.



It really wasn't until I was fourteen when I heard Kind of Blue that I REALLY started to dive into Jazz. They album is still one of my favorite of all time. Top five for always.

One thing I can't actually share with a video is an old man who is most likely dead who was playing the trumpet and singing at a restaurant we went to for Christmas when I was about eight. I couldn't stop watching the dude. He was solo and just charmed the hell out of the room and eight year old me. my mom had to remind me that we were having dinner together and to try to join in the conversation. That man made a lasting impression on me.

I don't know if there is a single song that got me into Jazz. I always heard Jazz, but I guess the opening track to Take Five is the first time I thought this Jazz stuff is simply incredible.

I guess even before Brubeck, there was Duke Ellington's Take the A Train, John Coltrane's My Favorite Things, Wes Montgomery' Windy and standards like Caravan, & Brazil. They are my some of my favorite songs from any genre. I'm sure they pushed me into Jazz even though I guess I lean to the Popular side of Jazz. Take the A Train I most likely heard in movie, and Windy on the radio or record store. I heard a couple of versions of Caravan. The Billy Vaughn version sounds loungey so I'll post that one.

The Dave Brubeck Quartet - Blue Rondo à la Turk


Duke Ellington, "Take the A Train"


Wes Montgomery - Windy


Billy Vaughn - Caravan

Along with various others, this song had a helping hand in getting me to appreciate jazzier vibes:

My blood is infused in Jazz/Blues; it was all there inside of me, in my cells since I was a cute little zygote. The feeling, the rhythm, the chords, the scales...Mmm mmm. Yes sir!

I just dig listening to groovy songs, but I just starting to play the piano and working on an old jazzy song.

If you're a jazz/ blues lover, do add me as your "friend."

Peace, Groovy People.

First time poster here. I got into Jazz strictly out of curiousity, bought Miles Davis Bitches Brew, and thought it was...eh. It wasn't until I bought Mahavishnu Orchestra's Visions of the Emerald Beyond that I really got into Jazz. Now i'm looking into non-fusion stuff.

For me it was probably Blue in Green.

But it could have been Take 5, or Unsquare Dance

Recently the one that sucked me back in was Ghost of Congo Square

And probably the coolest thing I found drunk one night was Mulatu Astatke - Mulatu of Ethiopia

GAH, almost forgot - Chet Baker's Somewhere over the rainbow

My 4th grade band/trumpet teacher put Maynard Ferguson - MacArthur Park on the turntable one day.
That set my brain on fire.
