Hello there /music/

Since we don't have a thread to discuss Jazz music. I decided to create one.

As the name implies, this thread is for Jazz music discussions! You may talk about artists/bands, songs/albums, styles/sub-genres, etc.

Most jazz, I get the impression it's more fun for the players than the listeners. I like Sun Ra though, his music and his approach to life.

>>4 I've listened to a fair bit over the years, but nothing really grabs me. I appreciate the musicianship, but that's not what I listen to music for. Hmmm, I like chaotic free jazz, and I like jazz flavours infused in other genres, but I can't think of a straight "jazz album" I love. Can you recommend me some high-energy, maybe psychedelic, fun jazz, with really audacious - cheeky even - compositional tricks? Nothing which is focussed on "creating a mood" or "painting a picture" or anything too wanky (I mean the wrong kind of wanky)

Hey. Let me know what do you think of these:
Komeda Quintet — Astigmatic
Pat Martino — Exit
Pat Martino — Nightwings
Randy Weston — Tanjah
Tõnu Naissoo Trio — Tõnu Naissoo Trio
Yosuke Yamashita Trio — Sunayama

8 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2018-09-22 14:30 ID:qGwORmVE

>>6 Hi! I'm about to listen to Pat Martino's "Nightwings", and noticed that sorted by album it follows Cardiacs' "Nighttracks - The Janice Long Sessions", which is a very tough act to follow and also a good idea of the BLOODY CHEEK that musically thrills me!

9 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2018-11-27 21:56 ID:qGwORmVE

>>6 Hey, I listened to the albums you recommended. They were okay, there was nothing I disliked, but it wasn't all quite the thrill ride I was after. Tanjah was sorta fun but felt a bit backgroundy. I liked "Vaïke Monica" on Tõnu Naissoo Trio. Sunayama
was pretty good, as was Exit - "Three Base Hit" was a fun jaunt, Blue Bossa was pretty sweet too. I liked Astigmatic, it felt like the saxophonist is taking the piss in a good way. The one I enjoyed most was Pat Martino — Nightwings. I have to tell you though, I started with TNT on and listened diligently, stroking my chin and going "ah yes that was a neat little thing they did there, hmmm yes good" and thought about it for a while after it finished... but the next thing I happened to listen to was this song for the first time: I found more pure glee in the cheeky musicality in those two hundred seconds than any jazz I've listened to.

Maybe I need to see more jazz groups live?

They were small digital-only labels that the occasional news article or editorial piece praised as "the future of music"? The Archive Organization still permits the creation and usage of storage to create netlabels, but even netlabels on have gone extinct.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I can play sweep arpeggios faster than Joe Satriani on a meth binge, and I'm deeply knowledgeable about diminished triads and dominant seventh chords, and I can shred at over 300 beats per second. I am trained in muscle memory pattern memorization. You are nothing to me but just another blues noodler at Guitar Center. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am practicing my secret rendition of Eugene's Trick Bag from Crossroads, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can play anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred scales, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in wicked solos, but I have access to an entire arsenal of capos, slides, and a really neato wah pedal, and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo. Unleash the fuckin' fury.

Well most labels are entirely netlabels now. I don't think the netlabel itself died, but they dropped the term "netlabel" because most releases are only put out digitally these days.

Classical European Music (10)

1 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2010-12-23 07:56 ID:ITZd5IjQ

I'm pretty new to the whole genre actually, I hardly know any of the names of the songs I like. I've just been listening to some Mozart and Beethoven cds I've had laying around (not sure how they even got here lol), and I realized this is one of the genres I just haven't explored at all that has so much substance to it. Can't believe I've just given it a pass for so long.

I'd like to get more into it, so I'm looking for some suggestions.

So, what are some of your favorite classical compositions, /music/?

2 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2010-12-26 21:31 ID:aOIGROSV

While they're probably the most mainstream you'll find, my favourites include Pachelbel's Canon in D, Vivaldi's Four Seasons and most of J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. I also like Nessun Dorma, whose composer's name escapes me at present.
I must confess, alas, that I haven't listened to anything particularly exotic. Most of my experience with classical music comes from my parents' TimeLife 50-CD set they'd bought in the mid-90s.

3 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2015-01-04 03:07 ID:4nXPAW2f

>>2 has some very good suggestions, but at some point, once you get used to those artists, I would really suggest looking at some modern classical, as well as some early classical because each period is very distinctive.
classical (1730–1820) is usually lighter than baroque and more partial to melody, and baroque compositions are often very sophisticated and longer-lasting. Medieval classical uses harmonies in a very different sense than classical.

Some personal fav's

Josquin des Prez, Mattaeus Pipelare, Dufay, Hildegard, Alfonso, Machaut,Perotin, Vitry, Dunstaple, Ockegham

20th century/Contemporary:
Cage, Ives, Schnittke, ligeti, Reich, Schoenberg, Bartok, Stravinsky, Webern, Britten, Hindemith

4 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2015-01-15 03:14 ID:4nXPAW2f

What exactly distinguishes 20th century classical from modern classical? I stick to the latter when describing music that falls into this category, the catagory being music made since the last half of the 20th century.

Also, how does everyone feel about classically inspired music that isn't contemporary classical (à la neoclassical)?

Less Known Japanese Singers! (150)

1 Name: Rurutia 2005-09-27 21:42 ID:ctfg1t+q

This thread is for the discussion of Japanese bands and artists who are not as well known in the west as say, Ayumi Hamasaki, The Pillows, and Gackt.
That is, not to put Gackt and the Pillows in the same boat. . .

Anyway, what are your favorite artists from Japan that are less known? I know mine. She's actually my favorite artist of all time. "Rurutia" (「ルルチア」、 sometimes 「ルルテイア」) is great. The thing is, I have only heard one album from her. Her "R" album. I actually listen to it on repeat over and over for days. I have a certain order for the songs on it, and if they are not played in that order it just doesn't sound right. Do you know Rurutia, and if her other work is good?

Other than Rurutia I like Rie Fu. She sings in both English and Japanese, so being bilingual, it is very fun listening to her music.

I have only heard one song from "Mai Kurai", called "Secret of my Heart". It is my girlfriends favorite song. I like it, but I haven't heard anymore of Mai Kurai. Is she good?

I also like Yumi, though I have only heard "New World" from her.

actually many of us, japanese metalheads think like this.
cos this band is just a boring follower from 90's V-kei bands and they are recently ripping things from death metal music.
i really can't agree that they are showing up on many metal festivals overseas, even though
their fanbase are mostly creepy fan girls.
the singer kyo has a horrible voice and technique for a death metal singer and the guitarit, bassist, drummer are also horrible for metal musicians!

I used to like them when I was a teenager, who thought listening to japanese bands made me a unique flower.

I lost interest when they started shifting to a more metal sound though. Because as you said, they are a bad metal band; decent as a prog rock band, but shitty shitty metal.

The worst part is that their fan girls have never cared about what kind of music they make, as long as Kyo screams about killing something and the other members pose and look cute.

Good Japanese heavy music is stuff like Sigh, Galneryus, a decent amount of X-Japan, and some others. In other words, bands who can play and sing first, rather than just preen for the girls and sound like a monotone lounge singer (99.9999 percent of visual kei). Loudness is also great for the 80s metal sound, along with peers like the excellent Earthshaker.
