Old School Friday: Jazz Tribute



I decided to go with two of my favorite jazz selections of all time. I had a great deal of jazz music to choose from, but I chose Herbie Mann's "Waterbed" because it's a funky tuned that was actually a featured song for the "Soul Train" line during the seventies. The second selection is one from the late, great Miles Davis, quite simply titled "So What". Enjoy!

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participants

PJ,
Miles was the man, at least when it came to jazz. Love me some, "So What."

I don't like much jazz, but I can definitely get iknto Herbie and Miles. Man reminds me of the sounds I heard as a child growing up. But as an adult, the only type of jazz I would buy (other than the Duke) was hard bop, and Miles was at the top of the heap, always.

Pjazzy - these are two of my favorites when it comes to jazz, and the videos were great picks for them.

Thanks so much, btw, for your comment and your kind words on my last 2 posts. Your thoughts, and those of others, made me feel much better about the whole issue!
