Any musicians in here that can play jazz?

Recommended Posts

Looking to collab on a new fun project :D (smooth jazz / funk / fusion)

 

I got some pretty jazzy improv chops on keys but nothing formal or super legit- but im curious if there are any watmmers that play jazz for real..

P .s. No irony here at all... I truly enjoy this sound.. Esp the j-funk/fusion/boogie stuff.

Nice, I really want to be in a Steely dan crossed with Snarky Puppy type band. Trouble is there is no one around here with the right styles to form said band. Also, I am not quite up to scratch myself so we'd be a poor version ha

Nice man! I dig... Sounds like a fun vision. "Poor Version" would actually be a cool name for a project :D

I am not choppy on the keys so i'd be on guit or bass with maybe some double upped synth bass.

tread carefully guys, jazz is super serious shit, like more intense than training to be in USMC infantry or a hibernation astronaut by like 100x and shit

Lol!! Wow have i not seen this movie??

 

 

I really enjoyed it, went by really fast, real straightforward. I still find the idea of r lee ermey esque teacher of jazz music absurd but that said the whole maddening obsession over perfection and greatness by both musician / mentor is gripping. And the drumming scenes are pretty fucking cool.

Ooh we should all chat then, cuz I'm actually more talking about that fine line between that soulful jazz-funk / r&b from the 80s and the Japanese-influenced fusion / progressive jazz / funk / pop stuff like:

And

and the hotel lounge feel like:

Not necessarily that smoooth kenny g type stuff which im not wanting to play really either. I have a crazy ambitious vision of fusing these sounds of the videos i listed above with hints of certain other influences, which if anyones interested, feel free to pm me and we can chat more :D i have a project in mind that id love to collab with likeminded creative peeps on, its a little hard to sort out where to start but maybe we can experiment with some things if anyones down and has a similar vision :D

If I take a guitar solo without thinking about it I sort of default to an 80s stylee holdsworth legato through a Mesa Boogie triple rectifier sound. It's pretty embarrassing in most modern instances, but uh, I'm here for you if needed. lol?

 

I mean, I'm not nearly that proficient but I can fake it sorta.

Dude awesome, thanks! Sounds legit (: would love to hear that.

 

Meanwhile, I did this pseudo jazzy 80s pop track and also a faux-bossa nova / fusion track on my last donovan release... Not that this is really close at all to those videos, but theres a breezy spirit to it i guess.

I've done a couple jazz compositions on my soundcloud, would love to talk more about it with you, but you can get an idea from my soundcloud.

I'm a semi-pro jazz musician. Been making money with it for about 8 years. Probably played a good hundred gigs by now. Bass/Piano/Vocals. I can work out whatever. Ragtime to Robert Glasper. I know jazz theory like the back of my hand. But am I gonna lend you my expertise...ha! no. HA! never.
