Obviously, most people who find this blog are probably already jazz fans. But what about those who randomly stumble into it? Especially the haters? Does the Jazzopath have anything for them?
This installment of 5 for Friday® is especially for people out there who claim to “hate” jazz. I offer you 5 titles that I believe are highly accessible albums by famous artists. Records that are remain highly listenable, yet offer a musical standard jazz aficionados would certainly approve of. Something to “tempt your ears with”, so to speak.
All titles should be readily available on Apple Music, Spotify, or wherever you normally stream. These are all famous, legitimate jazz records. Not just instrumental music masquerading as “jazz.” After listening to some of these, if you still “hate jazz”, I can only say that I’ve done my best to spread the word.
