Like your blog. Please check out my online music channel, which is called The Acid Jazz Channel, which is mostly acid jazz although it also has a lot of politics, alt rock, and trad jazz as well.

The channel is here:

and here, widescreen:

I think its the best music channel ever!

I'm sorry Philip, I'm sure you mean well, but you're music channel is as buggy as Windows Vista, it took me half an hour just to get something working, and then it was Steely Dan (nothing wrong with Steely, but he ain't Acid Jazz), and when I finally got a list of tunes up, I couldn't find anything that I would call Acid Jazz.

After reading through your homepage 3 times, I still have no idea what it's about, I left feeling bewildered and confused.

It goes through periods of bugginess.

It is working better now, but if you read the definition its not just acid jazz there's other kinds of music. I have a theory that if you wanted people to listen to trad jazz you would be better off mixing up the genres a bit. But you're welcome to create your own. I'll definitely check it out...

I was struggling to find out exactly what acid jazz was too, but found a pretty good site that explained it.

What is Acid Jazz?

Acid jazz (also known as club jazz) is a musical genre that combines elements of soul music, funk, disco, particularly looping beats and modal harmony. It developed over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance/pop music.

The compositions of groups such as The Brand New Heavies and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with Jazz music. The Heavies in particular were known in their early years for beginning their songs as catchy pop and rapidly steering them into jazz territory before "resolving" the composition and thus not losing any pop listeners but successfully "exposing" them to jazz elements in "baby steps".

The acid jazz "movement" is also seen as a "revival" of jazz-funk or jazz fusion or soul jazz by leading DJs such as Norman Jay or Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge, also known as "rare groove crate diggers".
