If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Cab Calloway was fabulous, and here is a contemperary artist that knocks my socks off.

Return? Jazz is stone cold dead, I tell you. Not the jazz spirit, but the jazz body.

Didn't ya'll watch the video I posted a link to? Smile

Several years ago I was staying at a Dallas Hotel where Cab was performing. I'm in an elevator that stops, in walks Cab Calloway. How cool was that. Very nice guy.

There's a lot of great jazz coming from outside the US.

Jazz has always been well received overseas.

That's because there is no racism overseas.

"That's because there is no racism overseas."

I have several friends that live in Germany for that very reason.


My wife and I absolutely loved our experience in Stuttgart, Germany, twenty eight years ago while stationed there as American soldiers. I’ll never forget the experience of driving to Switzerland and attending the world-renowned Montreux Jazz Festival, it was a beautiful experience.

Yes, I know that. I'm talking about the talented artists, not the people listening to it.

Jazz has been more popular in Europe since the late 1930's, and the tradition of American musicians moving to Europe because they can't get work here is old news. Not only is jazz more popular in Europe, but lots more white people go to Reggae, and blues concerts than black people do. Which just shows to go you that there are no rules when it comes to music.

There's racism of various kinds everywhere, including Europe.

There are a **** ton of awesome white jazz dudes.
Al DiMeola is one of the all-time greatest jazz guitarists.

No no no no no no....

White people imitate jazz. They do not make jazz. This is Jazz 101, and irrefutable.

Al DiMeola is an imitator, and not the real thing.

Apparently Oscar Peterson got a lot of criticism from fans and other musicians for working with Herb Ellis in the 50s.

Here's a short radio clip of OP talking about colour in jazz.
