Simple question : Is the Jazz really dying?
Lot of electronic music is happening, no real instruments, rare to find real sound of strings in today's music, every one is in hurry and so are the today's musicians.
Indian classical has faced the heat, we had an era of legends couple of decades ago and today it feels like that was the last generation. Feeling same with Jazz. Jazz albums don't appear in the list of hit, or maybe I am not exposed to latest happening is Jazz.
Have been seeing lot of write-ups, discussions revolving around Jazz is dying. There was movie called 'Splash' which also had a reference in one of the dialog that Jazz is dying. Was listening the Jazz streaming today morning and thought to put up the question for Gearheads also.
Does it feels like Jazz to any Gearheads?
