I’m taking the lead here to attempt a “round-robin” style post and get responses from as many of the folks connected to the TwitJazzNet community. As both a musician and writer, I’m always interested in hearing what music is turning people on of late — not a new concept in blogging certainly, but given the breadth of our group, I thought we might come up with a interesting list. So here is your assignment:
Question #1: Since January 1st, 2010, you’ve probably been exposed to some jazz you’ve never heard before, new or old. Name the one recording you’ve heard since the beginning of the year (in the last two months) that has ignited or re-ignited your passion for jazz the most.
I’m hoping that we are able to come up with a nice group of responses — I know it will be hard to pick just one, but it’s only in the last two months.
Here are the details:
Please limit your response to one or two sentences – it can be longer than a Tweet, but in the hopes that I’ll get more than a few responses, I’d like them to be short.
You can send your responses to me via email or through Twitter if you wish.
If there is someplace we can link so people can hear the music you are talking about, feel free to include that as well.
Please also include your real name and contact information – we are building our list of TwitJazzNet folks and it would be nice to get your information consolidated for our own internal use.
Anything I missed? Ah, a deadline! Since I’ll be switching us over to our new domain tonight, I’d love to get everything in before the day is over – how about we say no later than noon Wednesday on the West Coast? If it’s looking wimpy, I’ll extend Enjoy all!
UPDATE: Feel free to post in the comments, too! I’ll assemble everything together for the response post…
