I hope everyone is having a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that in the midst of eating and talking to others that everyone doesn't forget to be thankful for Jazz. Jazz has always been a social music, and since Thanksgiving can be social for many, I hope that there are lots of people listening to Jazz today. There is likely less Jazz today in person since today is a holiday, but that doesn't mean that we cannot listen to Jazz. We should also be thankful for Jazz since Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful although we should try to be thankful for Jazz everyday. I am thankful for Jazz, and I hope that everyone else is also thankful for Jazz.

Happy Jazz-turday Everyone! (That's Jazz on Saturday in case anyone forgot.) I hope everyone has been listening to lots of Jazz. The days are shorter and colder, but that just means it is the perfect time to listen to Jazz. Since Jazz is mostly played inside, this is a good time to go listen to it since being outside is more difficult. The shorter days are perfect for Jazz as well since Jazz is best when it is played in the evening time. Not all Jazz is played in the evening time, but Jazz is often played in darker rooms than other forms of music. I hope everyone gets to stay inside and listen to Jazz today.

Happy All Hallows Eve Everyone! I hope everybody is having a safe and spooky time tonight. Since any celebration is a reason to celebrate Jazz, I thought it might be good to share what makes Jazz so good. I started listening to Jazz a long time ago when I was much younger. I am a bit older now, so I have listened to Jazz for a lot of time. Jazz was always much different from other music since it is different every time it is played even when the same players play the same things at different times. This is good. I also like that Jazz contains many of the cool things in other kinds of music but in one music. It also seems like Jazz is much different than other music since each person has the freedom to play as they will. This might seem like it does not matter, but this is a defining feature of the American zeitgeist. I think this is also good. I also like that there is so much Jazz to listen to already that I can learn a lot about it even when I do not have time to listen to Jazz music in person. Live Jazz music is best, and this is what made me like it so much. I hope everyone has a nice holiday, and that this holiday also includes Jazz since all holidays should include Jazz.

Does one need to know Jazz to enjoy Jazz? This is a question which has been asked before. Since Jazz is an art, this is not true. Knowing more about Jazz might help one to enjoy Jazz more, but this is not required. Those who play Jazz might know a lot about the Jazz that they play, but not much about the Jazz that they don't play. Since Jazz is new every time it is played, it is impossible to know that much about Jazz at any given time. This is a part of how Jazz stays fresh although Jazz is not a food as we have said. Whether one knows about Jazz or not, one can always learn more through listening to Jazz. We are all the same in this way, and this is good.

Jazz is an art form which requires a lot of dedication. This means that many who play Jazz are seen as someone who only plays Jazz. This is not necessarily true. Since Jazz also has influence from other forms of music, Jazz players can at times play other forms of music. This is good. But we should think of Jazz players as players who can play more than Jazz, although playing Jazz is more than enough. Even if a Jazz player is seen as someone who only plays Jazz, this should be seen as a compliment since the Jazz they are playing must be good. If someone says this is a bad thing, then they need to listen to more Jazz. Listening to more Jazz is always a good thing.

Is Jazz better than other art forms or music? This is a question that has been asked. Jazz seems like it is better in many ways than other kinds of music but maybe not in all ways. It is important to listen to many forms of music so that one can appreciate Jazz to its fullest. It is hard to compare Jazz to other art forms other than music because other art forms are much different. Comparing Jazz to dancing, sculpture, and painting seems very difficult. We should appreciate Jazz for being Jazz and other arts for being other arts. Jazz is special, and regardless of other things, we should think about this.

Jazz

A large question is how Jazz should be performed. Some places wish that Jazz be a certain way since some Jazz can be too much for some audiences. This usually means that one should play either old tunes or new tunes in older ways. This is okay sometimes, but for Jazz to be new, Jazz must be played in ways it has not been played before. This means that some performances are not as good for new Jazz, which I just call Jazz as I have mentioned. We should remember that some performances are going to sound more different than previous performances we have heard. All performances are different since Jazz is always different each time it is played, so this is good.

Jazz

10/25/2022


Some have said that Jazz is abstract. I'm not sure if this is true since Jazz is played with instruments, and this seems hard to confuse with anything else. Other music is played with instruments, but other kinds of music are not exactly Jazz. Jazz can have words, although not all Jazz has words as we have said before, and Jazz with words seems like it would not be abstract. Some people must think Jazz is abstract because they have not listened to enough of it to know that it is not as abstract as they think. This means that more people need to listen to Jazz to understand it, and this seems okay.

Jazz

10/24/2022


Jazz is an art, and this means that it can be taught. Some say you can only learn Jazz from listening to older Jazz since the student will not be playing new Jazz yet. This seems good. Some say you can learn Jazz from understanding the structure of Jazz which means that some other person heard it first and then wrote about it. Both seem reasonable, although one should listen to Jazz more often since listening to Jazz is the best way to keep Jazz new. Some people may teach Jazz another way, but this seems like too much. Listening to Jazz is the best way to teach Jazz and the best way to learn Jazz. Adding steps to this means that we are listening to Jazz less, and we should be more careful than that.

Jazz

10/23/2022


Jazz is an art which is learned through listening to other Jazz. This might involve listening to older Jazz, but only playing older Jazz should not be the goal because Jazz changes all of the time. Trying to play old Jazz all of the time keeps Jazz from being new, and trying to play new old Jazz will never be as good as Jazz which is already new. We should enjoy Jazz in every form, but Jazz which is played today is unlike Jazz that is played yesterday. We should make sure we are listening to Jazz which is new at the time it is played instead of Jazz which is trying to be old as it is played. We should be thankful that we have the Jazz that is old and look forward to the Jazz which is new.

Happy Jazz-turday everyone! I hope that everyone gets a weekend full of Jazz. Jazz is a dish that is best served warm, so I hope everyone enjoys the warm weather along with some Jazz. Jazz is not a food, as we have said before, but since it is warm outside, listening to Jazz outside would be better than if it was not. It is important to listen to Jazz whether it is inside or outside, and I hope we all get our fill of Jazz today. There is never enough time for Jazz, but we can enjoy Jazz being made to fill the times that we can. This is good.

Jazz

10/21/2022


It has been said that someone who plays Jazz needs to know about Jazz that came before. This is true. But there is a lot of Jazz, so knowing about all of the Jazz before now would be impossible. Then they must mean that one must know about only some of the Jazz that came before. There is no way to know which past Jazz one should know. It seems that every person who plays Jazz must choose which older Jazz to learn, and this choice may be different for some than others. I think we should remember this. We should also remember that playing new Jazz is best since Jazz always changes and that older Jazz is Jazz which has not changed yet.

Jazz

10/20/2022


Jazz is an art which was once popular but is now considered less popular. I am not sure what this means since there have always been people who listen to Jazz. This must mean that Jazz used to be played more although there is more Jazz now than there ever has been. I think the trick to making Jazz more popular is to let people know that Jazz is being played and that there is a lot of it. If more people know that Jazz exists, then there will be more Jazz to listen to. This is a good thing.

Jazz

Some people say that Jazz is as American as Baseball. Baseball is very American, but it is not music. There are also a lot of people who watch Baseball, and this is probably more than the number of people who listen to Jazz. Jazz is American as it was developed in America, but it is not an athletic event. I think we should try to get as many people to listen to Jazz as who watch Baseball. I am not sure how to do that, but since Jazz is American, we should remind people of that. Jazz is American, and this is good.

Jazz

I have heard before someone say "what is Jazz?", and I think this is a definitely a question to ask. Jazz is music, and it is music which is played according to a written page as well as parts which are not written. All of these parts have a recipe, although Jazz is an art form which is not food as we have said. Music is art, and this means that Jazz is art. Jazz is an art which makes players think up their own music and play it without reading it. This is different than many other art forms and many other forms of music. This means that Jazz is always new, and as long as Jazz is played, it will stay alive. And since we are alive, it is good to listen to Jazz.

Jazz

10/17/2022


Some people say that Jazz is harder to listen to than other forms of music. I think this is true sometimes, but it is not true all of the time. Some Jazz has words which is closer to other forms of music that have words, but it is Jazz instead of anything else. Other times Jazz does not have words, and this might be different to listen to than Jazz with words. I think Jazz that has words or does not have words are good to listen to. In either case I do not think this means that Jazz is hard to listen to, and some people who think that Jazz is hard to listen to probably have not listened to as much Jazz as other kinds of music. I think more people should to listen to Jazz to avoid thinking this way. This helps Jazz to stay around and to have more of it. This is good.

Jazz

10/16/2022


I hope everyone has had another Jazz filled weekend. I was thinking about Jazz and other forms of art. Jazz is music, and music is one kind of art, but there are others. Jazz is like a recipe, but it is not food as we have said before. Art has recipes as well, although not all art is food. This means that Jazz is unlike other forms of art, and it is different than other forms of music as we have said. We should think about this sometimes, and we should make sure not to forget that we are lucky to listen to Jazz.

Jazz

Happy Jazz-turday everyone! This means Jazz on Saturdays in case anyone forgot. I hope everyone is listening to lots of Jazz today since it is usually easier to do this on the weekends than the weekdays for most. It is also easier to listen to Jazz with others rather than just yourself. Jazz is usually social except for other times when it is not. Since there will always be a community for Jazz, this means we should share these times with others if possible. This will help Jazz stay alive, and this will also help us to live our lives with more Jazz. This is good.

Jazz

10/14/2022


The weather is getting colder outside, and that means it is a good time to listen to Jazz. Most Jazz is played outside rather than inside, and this is good. Some Jazz is played outside, but most is not. This means that we should all be able to spend more time listening to Jazz since we are spending less time outside. It is possible to get too cold outside, but it is not possible to get too much Jazz inside.

Jazz

10/13/2022


Today I want to appreciate Jazz. I try to do this everyday, but since everyday is different sometimes I do less. This is okay. But sometimes we need to remind ourselves that Jazz is an art that requires people to listen to it so that it exists. This is good for us since we get to listen to Jazz, and it is good for Jazz since we get to make sure it exists. I hope everyone listens to Jazz today and appreciates that it is Jazz and not some other music that is not.

Jazz

10/12/2022


Jazz is an art that is alive. Jazz requires community and activity to be good. Much like a restaurant, it requires a good recipe and people to make it. Although you cannot eat Jazz, you can listen to it. And this means that we need to listen to good Jazz by Jazz musicians that have good recipes. But unlike good food, here we are talking about good Jazz. We should think about this when listening to Jazz to make sure it is good.

Jazz

10/11/2022


Jazz is an art. This means that the best Jazz is played when the Jazz player has a thought to play. By that I mean that the Jazz player has something to say although not necessarily in words because Jazz does not necessarily have words as we have said before. This might mean that less Jazz is played than would be played if the Jazz player did not have thoughts, but there is never enough Jazz even if that was the case. Good Jazz is best.

Jazz

10/10/2022


A wise man once said "I'm afraid when we learn to live we won't have time." I think this is a good lesson. I say this because we only have one life to listen to Jazz and we should make sure not to forget that. Much of Jazz is also about life even if it does not have words. We should then remember to live so that we can have Jazz in our lives.

Jazz

10/9/2022


I hope everyone had a weekend filled with Jazz. I hope this is the case because this means that those that play Jazz were able to be around others that play Jazz. This is how we make a better Jazz community. Jazz community means those that play Jazz are able to have good times around others that play Jazz since Jazz is music and cannot have community by itself. We all need to hear Jazz music play in order for there to be a crowd so this community happens. This means that we all need to listen to Jazz, and this is good.

Jazz

10/8/2022


Happy Jazz-turday everyone! I was thinking about unity and integrity in Jazz. It seems like the best Jazz is made by people who are different. It also seems like Jazz is best when it is honest. And honesty is only obtained by being consistent. I think this means that we need Jazz to be played by honest people who are different a lot of the time. This seems good.

Jazz

10/7/2022


Happy Friday! I hope everyone gets a lot of Jazz this weekend. I think it's important to fill our free times with Jazz since we don't always have time elsewise. I also think that the weekend is the best time for Jazz because that is when we have free times if we don't play Jazz, and it's when we play Jazz if we do play Jazz a lot of the time. Both are important because Jazz is important. I think we should remember this.

Jazz

10/6/2022


There are days when Jazz seems more clear than others. This is not because Jazz is different everyday, although this is true. This is because we change everyday. Some days we are better for Jazz, and some days we are not. This is why we must listen often, so that we get enough Jazz to have more good days for Jazz than bad ones.

Jazz

10/5/2022


Roses are red, violets are blue.

Jazz is not dead, and neither are you.

This is a Jazz couplet to get us started bright and early. This might seem sad, but since we are listening to Jazz today it means we are alive. This is good. And if we are not, then we're still doing well because we can still listen to Jazz. Some in the past have said that Jazz is dead, but they were incorrect. Jazz is alive and well, and for that we can write such words as above. But words are only a part of Jazz if at all as we have said before. I hope everyone gets more Jazz than words today.

Jazz

10/4/2022


I was much closer to Jazz today. We do not always get Jazz as much as we want, but we get as much as we can. There is never enough Jazz for some days, but other days we get enough to last several. Those are good days.

Jazz

10/3/2022


Today is my last day farther from Jazz. This will make Jazz feel different since I was not there to hear it. Jazz is also different every time, but the changes are often the same. Familiar changes are nice even though they are always different.

Jazz

10/2/2022


Another day another Jazz! I will be away from Jazz tomorrow since I will be going outside of KC (Kansas City), but I think there will be Jazz where I am going. This is always the case because Jazz is always with us as long we have listen to it, but I might be able to hear Jazz from outside of KC. I may not write about it here because this is Jazz from outside of KC, and this is about Jazz inside KC.

Jazz

10/1/2022


Happy Jazz-turday everyone! That's Jazz on Saturday for short. I don't have a lot of thoughts today, but Jazz is oftentimes better without words. Although a lot of Jazz started as songs (has words), much of Jazz today does not. This seems okay.

Jazz

9/30/2022


A new day is a new day for Jazz. Every day Jazz is different, and this means it is not the same. Sometimes I wonder if Jazz will ever repeat. But that is impossible, and we should not try. We should play New Jazz, which I just call Jazz.

Jazz

9/29/2022


Here is a double post to make up for lost time. I also had another thought. Jazz is never the same, no matter how much is played. This makes me wonder. Does that mean there will never be enough Jazz? I think this is true, although Jazz always seems to be enough.

Jazz

9/29/2022


Sorry everyone. I missed a day of Jazz. Posting here is difficult, but I will try to maintain an average. I was thinking. Jazz has no rules, but there is structure just like America. I like that. Jazz and America go together as good as Jazz, and this is a good thing.

Jazz

Jazz is an American art form. It should be played to keep culture. It deserves money as well. If there comes a time where Jazz is not, then the communists win, lol. We cannot have the communists win. Jazz should be played in America. Jazz should be played elsewhere sometimes, but not by communists.
