Question: Regarding this "Jazz Thread".......does so-called "Smooth Jazz" count / appropriate to post on this thread ?
(such as Rick Braun / Boney James / Richard Elliott / Paul Taylor / Doc Powell/ Peter White/Jazz-masters/ etc. etc. ??
I keenly realize many dedicated traditional Jazz fans do NOT like "Smooth Jazz" and take this term, and so called hybrid of
music, (from the late 1970's to 1st decade of this century, 2000, to 2010, find this music quite offensive, as imo that generation
of circa time frame, has lost long ago, its once strong, but, now moderate, to fast declining appeal...................
Just saying........(NOT talking about single VOCAL voice musicians), such as Anita Baker / Sade / George Benson, etc.
