Happy Old School Friday! I'm excited about today's theme: Jazz. When it comes to America's contributions to the world of music, jazz is without a doubt the greatest. Jazz has spawned the Blues and Rock & Roll, among other musical forms, and musicians from around the world have adopted the form, adapted it to their needs, and made it their own. There are so many different jazz forms, like Latin Jazz, Cool Jazz, BeBop, and maybe my favorite, Acid Jazz.

Today I'd like to present a couple of my favorites, both hailing from Great Britain. First up is Incognito, led by J.P. "Bluey" Maunick on guitar, with a live version of 'Collibri.'

How about that, pretty funky huh? You probably need to chill out for a minute now, so here's Ronnie Jordan with Tinsel Town.

That's it for this week, and I hoped you enjoyed it. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Old School Friday crew. And by the way I haven't forgot about adding links for you new OSF players. I'm still on the road and just haven't had the time. Please leave a comment if I missed you.

    These are excellent choices! The first vid almost had me up out of this chair swinging...and I love a man that plays a guitar, so Mr. Jordan has always been a fave!

    Have a good weekend!

    Awesome picks! I prefer more of the mellow as opposed to the upbeat & funky, but it's ALL GOOD to me! I think jazz is my favorite music genre. It is so diverse and satisfying!

    Hey, this blog is great but why haven't you updated it since the election days? Anyway, I hope you visit my blog too if you have the time to.

    Yes, that's right, where is the update to your blog? It's a waste to see good articles and read them here.

    Hey DP,
    Just checking in and praying that all is well with you and yours. Isn't it time for you to at least do a "I'm Still Here" post??

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
