    In this thread, I will post songs to help introduce people to this diverse genre. I also plan to post songs of my own
    arrangement or composition.

    In the beginning, there was dixieland jazz (1890s-1910s)
    (Nick LaRocca was the first recorded jazz artist)


    (This sub genre also includes ragtime)

    Then, came the swing era (1920s-1940s)

    (my great-grandpa played in Glen Miller's orchestra)


    ( Nezin can play this song)

    Finally, we have the bebop/modern period (1950s-1970s)

    (Dizzy Gillespie played a trumpet that was bent upwards)


    (This song was intended to be played by a string orchestra)

    Nhoj's stuff

    (Me playing my arrangement of Misty)

    Here is my arrangement of I've got the world on a string. I have put the sheet music and the midi file. Unfortunately, I don't have any video of the song being performed yet

    Yesterday (December 5th, 2012), we lost one of the best musicians in the history of modern jazz.

    The Los Angeles Times noted that he "was one of Jazz's first pop stars," even though he was not always happy with his fame, uncomfortable, for example, that Time Magazine had featured him on the cover before it did so for Duke Ellington, saying, "It just bothered me".The New York Times noted he had continued to play well into his old age, performing in 2011 and in 2010 only a month after getting a pacemaker, with Times music writer Nate Chinen commenting that Brubeck had replaced "the old hammer-and-anvil attack with something almost airy" and that his playing at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City was "the picture of judicious clarity".Writing in UK's The Daily Telegraph, music journalist Ivan Hewett said: "Brubeck didn’t have the réclame of some jazz musicians who lead tragic lives. He didn’t do drugs or drink. What he had was endless curiosity combined with stubbornness", adding "His work list is astonishing, including oratorios, musicals and concertos, as well as hundreds of jazz compositions. This quiet man of jazz was truly a marvel."

    May he rest in Peace.
    Take 5, Dave Brubeck. You have earned it.
