~Jazz It!~

Jazz is probably the most unpopular musical style at dA, so here I go again ready to be mostly ignored. Ironically, Jazz is also one of the most difficult styles to work with!! LOL

Only 300Kb! Music and AS3 programming by Ken1171. Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!

Just the guitar and the bass. I wouldn't know how to play them all. ;)

Yes, I was the bassist in my high school's jazz band for my senior year, and MY GOD. It was quite different, and I quickly liked fast swing music. Especially drums and the bass guitar. ^_^

Somebody has to stand against people who claim the bass is not an instrument on its own... O__O

Those are called emoticons. Whenever you write a reply, an "Emoticons" link to them will show up under the text box where you write. Click there to see what you have to write to make them show. For example, this :D is a semicolon followed by a capital D. ^^

Thank you! Most people prefer Smooth Jazz over classic Jazz because it's more laid back. As you can see it's a completely different style, though still retaining the absence of form that makes Jazz quite unique.

Yeah, in my case, there's a Smooth Jazz radio which I listen everyday on Internet. I don't get tired of the songs yet. :XD: There are interesting chords that some songs use.

This is probably why Jazz is not for everyone. Jazz doesn't run on a rail, it has no predetermined form, and different artists may play the same music in a completely different way and style.

Jazz is the best! You can Jazz anything up, but you can't touch Jazz! Right now the thing I'm jazzing on is the three introductions by Dave Grusin for the late 60's-early 70's TV show "It Takes a Thief", esp season 2 or Arrangement B. What that man does in 1 minute of time..... You'll find season 3 (arrangement C) intro on YouTube. and Arrangement A here: [link] I'm still looking for a better version of B (I have a .mp3 from a tape from a TV but its still good!)

So keep on with the Jazz!

Thanks! It's rather smooth jazz, so the beat is much faster than classic jazz. :)

Yes Jazz is one of the styles I grew up playing.

This is more Smooth Jazz for me :) Really Funky

I dare you to do something that Mahavishnu or Return To Forever would do >:D

Thanks! I have posted original music in a number of different styles (pop, Middle Eastern, Euro, rock, country, heavy metal, techno, Asian, Blues), but Jazz is something I have come back to. In some tunes I mix different styles to get some more exotic results, like Egyptian music mixed with Japanese koto. LOL
