In case you didn’t hear, April is Jazz Appreciation Month. That means all month, we’ll be highlighting jazz in all its forms: loose, free-flowing improvisation, the intricacies of harmony, rhythm, and melodic tension, and more conventional jazz balladry.
Are you something of a jazz aficionado? Help us kick off the month by contributing to our collaborative Jazz Appreciation Month playlist. You can also celebrate by making a jazz playlist of your favorite standards and give it a theme — “Acid Jazz,” “Dinner Jazz,” “Bebop,” or otherwise. Do you already have a jazzy playlist to share? Let us know. We could end up tweeting about it or posting it to Facebook.
Listen to the ever-expanding Jazz Appreciation Month playlist now. And let us know if you follow or are a Jazz expert in the comments.
