I think it was Luis Armstrong, the legendary Jazzman, who said that he considers any song he composes to be perfect when no two sections are repeated more than twice. These are the words, no doubt, of one helluva creative musician.
The music you will hear in this mix not in the same mold that Luis Armstrong is talking about. Jazzy Lounge, for me, is different from Jazz music in that you will struggle to find even 3 sections that are entirely different from each other. The producers tend to grab onto a melody and then repeat it while adding different elements here and there. No doubt hardcore Jazz fans will find this kind of treatment repetitive but for me it makes Jazzy Lounge much more approachable than proper Jazz music. It is, as it were, the low hanging fruit on the Jazz tree!
Anyway if you are a hardcore Jazz fan, and love your Jazz strong and pure, then I hope you can find it within yourself to give me just 1 Hour 18 minutes of your time and simply listen …I promise you will not be disappointed. To make sure that repetition is minimized, I mixed things up a bit by including Jazzy sounding Latin tracks …and one or two “Future Jazz” type tracks. It’s a nice mix of light and hard(ish) Jazzy sounds that, if nothing else, is at least different from the normal Lounge music I play these days.
I will be thrashing out a Soulful House mix just about immediately after this. I am currently doing a Soulful House mix for another project and have heard tracks that I think you MUST hear …trust me you will need your singing voice and your dancing shoes for this one.
Lastly, please do not be shy to drop me a mail and give feedback if you would like. I know that many people do not have Facebook accounts and, many of those who do, prefer not to comment using their FB profiles on public sites. Drop me a mail if you want …I promise I am not a spammer of mailboxes …or a stalker. You are more likely NOT to hear from me than hear from me. I have been running this blog for three years now and apart from the automatic email that goes to Subscribers when I publish a new mix, I have never ever sent ANYTHING to anyone that was unsolicited. So chill …your email address is as safe as can be with me.
So please enjoy and no matter how stuck-up he often sounded, Shakespeare also said many deep and powerful things like: “The Earth has music for those who listen.”.
