    Default Do you like hip-hop and Jazz?

    Hey guys!!! Does anyone here enjoy Jazz music as much as well as hip-hop? Jazz could have some good sounds!!! Anyways, I’m listening to a few tracks from the new Soullive album called break out. Has anyone heard it? I got it from my internship at umvd. They mix jazz music with hip-hop beats. I'd just thought to share with you guys. They have a website if you want to hear a few clips. See ya.

    That sounds really interesting. Thanks for sharing.
    I really like jazz! I saw the other thread about how everyone hates jazz but I really respect and enjoy it. And I love dancing so I love hip hop. :-D

    One thing I love about being a musician is I can enjoy listening to and appreciating a wide variety, styles and genres of music. I actually enjoy listening to some metal music, I really enjoy the likes of the Beatles, Yes and Pink Floyd. I also enjoy Herbie Hancock, Oscar Peterson, Joe Satriani, Feist, Coldplay, U2, Vienna Teng......the list goes on forever. I really do enjoy all kinds of music!

    Anything that has a chord progression shorter than four chords that repeats over and over again without variation is in lamen's terms "lame". I'm a jazz musician, although I started with blues and rock, I'm not impressed with most rock and other forms of pop music. Jazz is another story of course. In jazz there is much more subtle interplay between the musicians. That's not to say that grooves suck all together. Grooves can be engaging to listen to if there is some complexity or at least virtuoso soloists.

    I think jazz is great! I can't abide hip hop or R&B though - It's the bane of the modern world. It's true that learning an instrument widens your appreciation of other music, but for me R&B will always be the devils music.

    I think anything that sounds great is great.
    Genres don't matter to me.
    I think it's all about content, substance, and taste.

    So aesthetic is more important than concept? Yes, most popular music is unengaging in its simplicity and vagueness, because it's pre-occupied with the small and mundane, but complexity and virtuosity for its own sake proves to be as hollow and vague.

    I can't really embrace hip hop, because I like jazz. They're practically complete opposites. To like both is like being fond of both country and opera.

    Jazz does not put emphasis on the downbeat, and improvisation is essential to jazz. If you don't have the improvisation, it's not jazz. No way, no how. Glenn Miller is not jazz. Jazz is also good for listening, not just dancing along with. And crowds are not supposed to make much noise during jazz concerts, or people can't hear the music. It's not something where everyone in the audience joins in.

    And also, I associate jazz with cultural renaissance, whereas hip hop is associated with cultural decay. People come dressed in their Sunday best when they attend a jazz concert, but they dress like drug-dealing punk losers when they attend hip hop concerts. I can have intelligent conversations with jazz fans, but I'm always afraid a hip hop fan will want to beat me up to show who rules the neighborhood. Maybe I'm oversimplifying things, but that's the general impression each one gives to me.

    Actually, I don't like hip hop/rap and I do like jazz... but I also like both country and opera. I'm speaking of real country... bluegrass and real country artists like the Louvin Brothers, Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and Johnny Cash and not that pop with a southern accent crap. Nevertheless... I am well aware that it is an entire universe away from Wagner and Puccini. As a visual artist, however, I have always been inspired by the art of folk artists, outsider artists, the art of children, and art from non-Western cultures that would appear almost untutored by Western art standards (but certainly is not... the standards are merely different). This in no way undermines my admiration for Rubens, Michelangelo, or Vermeer. Perhaps Picasso explained it best when he suggested that an artist creates his art in the same way as a Renaissance prince begat his children: as a merger of the aristocratic and the peasant stock.

    i like dixieland and hard bop.
    don't care much for hiphop other than an occasional dance use. hh is just a branch of disco to me, and disco did it better.

    Digable Planets combines Jazz and Hip Hop. I don't think they captured much of the mainstream though

    Why are jazz and hip-hop grouped together?

    I despise (c)rap and love jazz.

    I love jazz. HipHop and rap are not my cup of tea, but I think that may have at least in part something to do with my age. It's probably different when you have grown up with it. As it is 'I don't get it.'
