The Grand Collage: “Jazz is America’s Classical Music”



  1. I took a Jazz History class in college many years ago. It was the coolest class I have ever had! Listened to so much great jazz! I once had a copy of “Kind of Blue” on vinyl. I ended up giving it to a musician friend of mine before graduation. Davis’ “Sketches of Spain” is great too! Gotta love Coltrane’s “Blue Train” as well! And Monk is amazing! I agree with you regarding Jazz being America’s classical music. Funny thing my teacher said once, “If people are not talking at a party, just play jazz. That will get them talking every time.” Loved that class and still love jazz. God bless!
