Ask any Jazz aficionado about Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie or Charlie Mingus and they will tell you volumes about these lost sages and their contributions to the fundamentals of this timeless genre. Unfortunately, if you ask about the same three to anyone born within the last ten years you might not get much back for your trouble or even – sadly – much recognition when it comes to naming these greats. In an age where we use the internet for getting our renewable energy from places like www.texaselectricityproviders.com/business/, downloading movies, streaming TV shows or even buying cars it seems like jazz and the masters have fallen by the wayside.
Sure, people still listen to music online and some even listen to the newer jazz that’s on the market, but it just doesn’t have the same heart and soul as the originals and that’s something you just can’t replicate or imitate – you have to live it. Luckily, there are still services out there that sell the albums of the greats and as long as someone still remembers the era of jazz and the rich history of the genre, there will still be a place in our homes for the likes of Parker and Armstrong and, especially, Davis.
