Do you have an interest in jazz, but have
absolutely NO idea where to start? Hopefully, this site can be of some assistance to
you. The information here is strictly my opinion, so take it with a grain of
salt. I don't claim to be some type of know-it-all expert. I just like the music
and have a real passion for it. I have been listening to it since
1996. I made this site after I had been listening to it for 2 years,
so I'm pretty new to it myself. The topics are:
|Introduction||Jazz styles||Dudes I dig||Recommended CDs|
|30 Favorite CDs||Buying tips||Listening tips||Audio clips|
|Coltrane Collage||Christmas CDs||Jazz Links||Credits|
