A Massive Genre Journey submitted by Meginator on August 22, 2022, 10:12am This is an essential compilation for anyone interested in the lengthy history of jazz music, from its origins in turn-of-the-century ragtime to the current avant garde scene that is constantly pushing the boundaries between music and mere noise. A chronological journey that highlights the genre’s pivotal turning points, its various branches, and its most prominent musicians, this compilation traces the history of the genre while hinting at its future; even if some of the later tracks are (probably deliberately) off-putting, everyone who enjoys music will find something to love here and the extensive liner notes provide historical and musical context for each and every track. This is *the* place to start if you’re interested in exploring jazz, a sampling of the genre at its most brilliant moments and potentially the beginning of a life-long love affair with the beauty of swing and improvisation.
