New Ideas for Jazz Appreciation Month

1. Listen to a classic jazz recording and do nothing else but listen. Here are some possibilities:

Miles Davis, Kind of Blue
John Coltrane, A Love Supreme
Duke Ellington, Ellington Indigos

2. Listen to some jazz on vinyl, if you can find the equipment. Notice the difference in sound from CDs or MP3 files.

3. Learn some jazz language: chops, gigs, time in the woodshed, etc.
