I only started listening to jazz last year , when I "stumbled upon" a jazz radio program . Since then , I've been a fan of jazz (that genre of music , not the Utah Jazz , mind you ).
Jazz is a beautiful type of music . Well , not only beautiful but it can also be very funky , catchy and creative . That's why , I think jazz is so difficult to describe .
Basically , what first attracted me to jazz was the lyrics : the rhymes and also the meanings of them . My first encounter with jazz was a song by the Gershwin brothers and I was really charmed by the song . It was "Someone to Watch Over Me" .
I've been a Gershwin fan ever since and have discovered so much jazz stuff now . I know more about the artists , the forms of jazz and all that .
For now , my fave jazz artist is Harry Connick Jr. , the so-called heir of the late Frank Sinatra . And my favourite trumpeteer is Wynton Marsalis . Y'know , too bad I missed the concert in which he conducted an orchestra here . It was about 3-4 months ago . If any of you caught it , do mail me !!!
