Ten Great Jazz Performances

What does great jazz sound like? And who were "the great ones"? Here's a link to Ten Great Jazz Performances by many of the best that ever were... Thelonius Monk, Ahmad Jamal, Miles, Lady Day (Miss Billie Holiday), and even Louis Armstrong doing "What A Wonderful World."

I'm not sure when I stumbled upon this blog but if you don't have time to listen to the whole set, just do the Benny Goodman rendition of his 1936 hit written by Louis Prima, Sing, Sing, Sing, number 8 on this play list which attempts to give a quick overview of the jazz influence in modern culture.

That's all for now... why let words get in the way? Just be sure to bookmark the page so you can listen to all ten when you have more time.
