Jazz Sunday: The Basics

Every now and then, someone asks me, “How do I get into jazz?” Well, here is a bit of a primer to get you started.

It’s just about entirely acoustic, nothing too wild, and loaded with classics. This should provide you with a nice springboard to get you to the next level.

Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for sharing your playlist, will check it out.

    I’m an on and off jazz listener and have started including some jazz in my “Sunday Six” feature.

    Most times when listening to jazz I like it – unless it’s something “really wild”. For example, Miles Davis oftentimes isn’t my cup of tea.

        Though I suppose I still should have known better: Just last Sunday, I included a 1954 Sonny Rollins tune I dig, off the album “Miles Davis with Sonny Rollins”: Airegin
