From the first time I heard "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," I fell in love with the sweet harmonies and rich, warming music made by Crosby, Stills and Nash.  Since that time, they celebrated the Summer of…Continue

I thought Miles was too avant guard as well. His style seemes to be integrated into jazz more now that people have gotten used to it.

Some music gives me a headache.  Miles often falls into that category sometimes.  Not as much as Strasvinski.

Thelonious Monk is great.

I don't know much about music, or music history Randall Smith.  All I know about Indiana is  that's werere "The Music Man" story (play, and movie) took place.

Dave Brubeck and Stan Kenton are a couple of my favorites.

Jazz Wizard Thelonious Monk’s Lost Masterpiece
To mark his centennial, the jazz legend’s lost album, ‘Les liaisons dangereuses 160,’ has finally been made available. And boy, is it special.

A veritable pot pouri of topics and music added here!

My father was born in Elkhart (me, South Bend). Surprised you didn't know it was a music (and RV) city, Chris. And I'm glad to hear someone else hates Kenny G as much as I do! There's no escaping him at airports. I was once tortured for 4 hours!

I'm sure Dave Brubeck has been mentioned before. He and his quartet is at the top of my favorite list.

Miles and Dizzy could be a little too "avant guarde" for my tastes, but not always, like Miles' "Sketches of Spain".

When in Greece, I heard the oudi being played many times. Very Greek sounding, but not particularly pleasing to my ear.

Afro Pop, believe it or not  is supported by Voice of America.

Carmen Maranda! I wonder how much Cuban and Afro-pop was influenced by her.

Cuban Jazz and Argentan Tango are also great to listen too.

All countries have great music.

Dizzy Gillespie - a night in Tunisia.

hip hop fans should recognize the very beginning of this song as one of the many samples in Gang Starr's 1989 debut single "Words I Manifest." this track is simply amazing. everything from Dizzie's amazing trumpet playing to the infectious sound of the vibes that are sprinkled throughout the track. Dizzie Gillespie is famous for being one of the founders of Bebop, modern (along with Charlie Parker) and Cuban influenced Jazz. he died in January of 1993 but left his legacy behind. the pictures on this video show his face looking like that of a blowfish. his face looked like this because he never had any formal instruction on playing the trumpet but learned to play it anyways which damaged his face. you may recognize the style of trumpet he is playing; horn pointing upward. this was his signature and he was the very first to do this. he is als

Music is world wide.

Spanish Guitar

Thankfully the internet allows access to a variety of music.

Local radio is limited in diversity while catering to music companies.

Joan, I've always loved Carmen Miranda.  Of course that's coming from me, a caucasian American gringo.  I'm sure the folks of Central and South America were rolling their eyes.

Spanish guitar, the Oud, and other instruments across the  Mediterranean are nice to listen to.

Chris, I remember, vividly, the crimes committed by the U.S. against Iran. Our country may pretend we have a noble history, however, too many of us remember to make denial and delusion effective.
