The Jazz Inn: Revisit

















Good music is good music regardless of the style.
A Darker Shade Of Blue is dedicated to high quality "outstream" orientated jazz.
My old defunct blog "The Jazz Inn" was dedicated to excellent mainstream orientated jazz.
Instead of relaunching "The Jazz Inn" as a separate blog, I will incorporate it's concept into "A Darker Shade Of Blue".
The emphasis will continue to be more on "outstream orientated stuff, but I will post occasionally some good straight ahead jazz.
Coming up this week.

  5. On the 'straight ahead' thing... To be honest, having spent years devoting my listening to the 'outstream,' there comes a point where any distinction becomes irrelevant.. Although I'm never sure how the rest of the 'world' sees it. Where do players like Von Freeman, or even Buck Hill fit in? I'm always surprised at what Ray's Jazz (in Foyles, London) includes in their 'experimental Jazz' section - David Murray, for instance, or Bobby Bradford. Or even these lovely Johnny Dyani posts on Steeplechase, a label you'd sort of associate with Straight Ahead more than outstream, no?

    1. Hi Gustav.

      I wholly agree with you. Eventually we should judge the music according to it's contents and not by the it's category.
