I’m a pretty ecclectic person when it comes to music.  I listen to almost all genres of music, including: Pop music in various languages, Alternative-Rock, Top 40 Urban, Punk, Ska, Classic 1950s-60s Pop & Motown music, Techno/Dance, etc.  Recently, I’ve really gotten interested in Jazz music.  Well, I mean…it’s mostly Bossa Nova, Soft Jazz, Brazilian Jazz & some Verve Jazz.  I’m not really familiar with Rythm & Blues, or the Bluegrass stuff.  I just mostly listen to the tropical/Latin type of Jazz music…with songs like “The Waters of March” & “Corcovado.

I’ve heard of Jazz music since I was a kid, but I never really knew anything about it until probably 2-3 years ago.  I first kick-started my interest in Jazz music when a friend of mine mentioned that his favorite ‘crusing’ song was “The Girl From Ipanema“.  I had never heard of that song before, so I decided to look it up on the Internet.  Little did I know, that this would be the song that threw me right into the deep end of the Jazz genre.  I was instantly hooked the moment I heard that song.

Now, I still don’t know a hill of beans about Jazz music… Some would still say I’m a “noob” (in Internet lingo), but I am excited to share this with everyone.  It certainly broadened my musical tastebuds.  These are some of the Jazz-type artists that I know of & like.  I have included links, so you can sample their songs.

I hope you enjoy this music as much as I do!  Curl up with a nice hot cup of coffee & gaze longingly out the misty-faced window on this brisk Autumn evening…
