I always wonder if Headhunters classify as jazz record - it's verrry funky.

I always wonder if Headhunters classify as jazz record - it's verrry funky.

Jazz is an umbrella term . There's Jazz-blues and Blues-jazz , each fusion respectively utilizing more aspects of one genre over the other (jazz+blues is kind of a bad example since they're on some yin/yang type ish , so it all depends on who you're asking) . When I hear someone say they like jazz it's kinda like they just said they like sports . What kind of sports ?

Herbie's definitely one of the legends . He's clocked in thousands of hours of focused practice to master the "rules" , so he's allowed to break 'em (you can tell when someone's just regurgitating licks and doesn't have everything locked , similar to watching some street league dudes who can't ride tranny do awkward kickturns on the qp) . Herbie was a key part of many historically significant recordings/shows , and in his later years as a bandleader , started directing his energy and creative forces to push music into different directions (Headhunters/Rockit etc) . Headhunters has a hypnotic mix of funk/rock/soul but definitely still relies on some sweet jazz harmony/improvisation (listen to herbie's keyboard solos on chameleon) that every well-rounded musician has in the utility belt .

p.s. Digging into the etymology of the word "jazz" , you find that a lot of folks (researchers/historians) claim the term was coined by white folk (USA) and their blatant disregard for any musical achievements made by african-americans . The whites likened black music to masturbatory outbursts (jism/jizz) - hence the term jazz . I have a friend who just graduated from UCLA's department of ethnomusicology as a performance major , and refuses to call this music jazz . Instead he uses "BAM" (black american music) , and is convinced that anyone using the word jazz is a kook . . . I figure if Miles , Trane and all the legends present and active during it's heyday used the word "jazz" , it's a green light for the rest of us who grew up around their music .

p.p.s. this 1 pretty funky too

Back to Herbie Hancock, although this'll be relevant to Euro pals... he'll be playing live at Pori Jazz festival in Finland, July 14.

So I'm trying to figure out a way how to get there. Tickets are still available.

Anyone going actually?

Pulled trigger to Pori Jazz friday night concert... looking forward to Herbie Hancock and Jamiroquai night.

Herbie is playing before Jamiroquai, kinda should be other way around, considering legend status I would give curtains act to Herbie.

I'm surprised that no one has posted the most obligatory Jazz song in all of skateboarding yet!

"Who do you think is the best dressed dude in skateboarding?"
"Me." -Jovontae Turner

Miles Davis - Bitches Brew is one of my favourite albums of all time, and I'm happy somebody posted it up there. Great record if you're just getting into jazz, as it has a big rock influence. Buckle up, it's a wild ride.

Been missing playing saxophone recently (especially bari) and have been listening to a lot of jazz again as a result. Charles Mingus is my absolute fav, but here's some stuff I've gone back to a lot over the years:









The Penguin Guide to Jazz is a super rad/intimidating book to check out for an insane amount of jazz album recommendations and I don't think there's anything on the net that really compares to it, even if it is a bit dated now. Also never knew about the origins of the term jazz from the poster earlier in the thread. Pretty cool how the talent of the huge jazz figures pretty much entirely erased any derogatory/insulting stigma from it.
