    I'm now listening to most of my music via streaming, Amazon Music, Pandora, Google Play etc, BUT back in the day I used to listen to lots of CDs (OK I go back to records too!). So today I was cleaning out my desk drawer at work and I found a stash of jazz CDs that I used to listen to at work, I guess. (The player is still here, my coworkers use it for the radio now!)

    So for the better part of the day I have been jamming listening to some AWESOME jazz music on my computer! I have a nice speaker bar. (HEY I'm the IT guy! ) I've got Stanley Jordan, Weather Report, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Miles Davis, Jonathan Butler, AND what's on right now, Spyro Gyra's "Morning Dance"

    So are there any other jazz fans out there? I guess for me, I mostly like the cool jazz from the 50ies and 60ies which then transitioned in to Jazz fusion from the 70ies and 80ies! I used to have a tradition with my Dad of seeing shows together either at the musikfest in Bethlehem OR the Mellon Jazzfest here in Philly. I saw SO many greats with my Dad! Miles, BB King, Lionel Hampton, Dizzy, Philly Joe, Bill Frizzell, Grover. Wynton Marsalas, etc

    I have a number of jazz LPs by: Jarrett, Davis, Coltrane, Getz, Weather Report, Kirk, Dolphy, Blakey. If I'm not listening to progressive rock, then I'm probably listening to jazz.

    Jim Hall
    Ahmad Jamal
    Bill Evans
    Barney Kessel
    Jimmy Bruno
    Joe Pass
    Pat Martino
    Bruce Forman
    Bobby Broom
    Kenny Burrell
    Wes Montgomery
    Grant Green
    Tal Farlow
    Kurt Rosenwinkle
    Jimmy Bruno
    Jack DeJohnette
    Oscar Peterson
    Thelonious Monk
    McCoy Tyner
    Herbie Hancock
    Charles Lloyd
    Miles Davis
    Jaco Pastorius
    Joe Zawinul

    .... really, there are too many to mention. Those were just the first ones to pop in my head.

    I'd love to talk jazz with you folks. It doesn't seem that many people are really into straight ahead jazz, bop, or hard bop, or jazz fusion anymore.
