  1. Trying to broaden my understanding of jazz.

  2. Innerviews

    Innerviews is a website run by music journalist Anil Prasad. It has a lot of great and well-conducted interviews of artists running the gamut from jazz, fusion (in a broad sense of the word), electronic music, acoustic music, prog rock, and a load of other styles. He allows the subject to talk in depth about what they're interested in while still covering the essence of their career, which is what makes these interviews superior to the usually bare-bones or ignorant ones conducted elsewhere. http://www.innerviews.org/ - Innerviews: Music Without Borders (main page). http://www.innerviews.org/interviews.html - Innerviews: the Interviews - includes interviews with modern sax great Steve Coleman, guitarists Steve Hackett (Genesis), Steve Howe (Yes; Asia), Steve Morse (Dixie Dregs; Deep Purple), Allan Holdsworth (a fusion great), Pat Metheny (another fusion great), Al Di Meola (ditto), Nguyên Lê (a lesser-known fusion great), Rez Abbasi (ditto), Adrian Belew (King Crimson), Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Rory Gallagher (deceased), vocalist/guitarist/bassist Greg Lake (King Crimson; ELP), bassists Tony Levin (King Crimson), Victor Wooten (fusion again), drummer Bill Bruford (King Crimson), keyboard-player Rick Wakeman (Yes), and singer-songwriter Tori Amos. http://www.innerviews.org/book.html - Innerviews: the Innerviews Book - Prasad's recent book (a compilation of interviews - haven't read it myself). If you have any time to spare, I can't recommend Innerviews highly enough.
  3. Thread Indices

    I understand, thank you for your time anyways.
  4. Music to End or Start a Year?

    I plan to listen to In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson on New Year's Day. I haven't heard the album entire yet, but I've already overplayed "21st Century Schizoid Man" and I'm fond of "Moonchild". I want to get into more jazz in general this year (the reason that I came back to this forum after having forgotten about it for quite some time).
  5. Thread Indices

    Point taken; sorry if this came off as arrogant.
  6. Thread Indices

    Certainly. http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=5827.0
  7. Thread Indices

    A few years ago I ran into a forum (the Sergio Leone Web Board) that employed an index for all the various topics that arose (in this case it was for cataloguing movie-specific threads on their off-topic section). It was a reasonable way to minimize the number of threads with the same topic, and I think it might be a good idea for this forum. Any thoughts or criticism?
  8. Jazz Musicians on Jimi Hendrix

    What have jazz musicians said or thought about Jimi Hendrix? Sorry this post is so short; I had something more in-depth, but my browser started acting up, and I don't have much time right now.
