Bach is always jazzable, Claudia. Just add syncopation!
My theory is that jazz got invented because classically-schooled musicians got bored with most classical music. (Some clasical music is highly syncopated, however – but you have to know who the composers are.)
Hey Claudia, check out some Michael Brecker when you can. Sadly Michael passed in ’07. Here’s a taste featuring him on the IWI, then the sax.
Hey, Jimmy – listen to the Mozart link from toby miles! I loved it! Thanks, Toby!
WDS, my toes were tapping! Very Celtic and enjoyable! Thanks.
THANKS, MJA!! How about some links to Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington – and Diana Krall following those others in the “classics”? Some of the old Bessie Smith recordings are great too.
@ VietVet: YES!! Have most of the old albums – still sound great!
Please excuse this additional post, if you don’t love a history of jazz,,

Confession: I can’t stand Louis Armstrong’s voice/singing. There. I said it.
Confession: I’ve always hated a trumpet muted with a toilet plunger base,,,
Nuff said,, you all know what I’m saying.
