Many artists have eschewed using the term "jazz" altogether. My hero Yusef Lateef called his work autophysiopsychic music.

Some trace the origins of the term "jazz" to jism. Jazz having first found a home in houses of ill repute in New Orleans and beyond... Might be apocryphal, but certainly a colorful etymology.

oh that lime-green striped suit with the giant collar?
it is pretty jazzy!
  10:57am Listener Gregory:

@Doug, totally jism!
This is the first time I have made that comment by the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am doctorjazz:

@Coel, that's why many "jazz" musicians have not wanted to be labeled jazz musicians.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am Doug Schulkind:

Say it with me, everyone!

Totally Jism was the name of my first band in high school.

Doug i like the idea of doing away with the term altogether -along with most other "genre" names.
makes it harder to communicate with people though.
...and i've read that before about the other origin. kinda points in the same direction anyway!

Most mainstream records shops used to have that wonderful heading on their racks 'Rock & Pop'.

Doug, not surprised that they did not stick with that name.

the next time someone asks what i was listening to -if it's so, i'll tell them i was listening to autophysiopsychic music. i'll report back.
  11:10am John from Florham park:

@Doug as I have gotten older and somewhat wiser this stink and the internet only streams have broadened my musical tastes to the point where I have given up on commercial rock radio and it is this Station or a couple of others, sorry to be somewhat long winded
  11:11am John from Florham park:

@Doug I am on the mailing list a couple if can’t miss programs is Mary wing and dark night of the soul and uncle Michael show after yours
  11:13am John from Florham park:

First one I meant station damn spellcheck
Avatar 11:14am coelacanth∅:

i sometime answer the "what kind of music do you like" question with "adventurous music". -which is also the term that i've been trying to spread to replace the almost always incorrect "experimental music" category.

Hello, Sir! So you were at that Springsteen show in Georgetown's McDonough gym in '75, too?!

I guess Uncle Michael's personal assistant, Al Go-Rhythm, will be playing Metal Machine Music for three hours.

No Way Phillippe! ...she must've meant it in a good way!
that purple paisley smoking jacket is Way Out! -like "OUT jazz"...Way Out man!

Your groove-o-meter is a finely tuned instrument.

This cut is also totally jism, but not jazz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am Phillippe Bastille:

@Doug started drinking late in life, did ya?
  11:38am Mark R:

This Kings Aigbologa Bucknor track is SMOKIN'!!! I love how these African cats like King Sunny Adé and Fela will just get these grooves going for 10, 20, sometimes 30 minutes! You feel like folks would just dance themselves literally to death.
  11:40am Mark R:

(Which wouldn't be a bad way to go, BTW.)
  11:40am Mark R:

Of course, it would be a bummer for the other dancers. "Did you have fun?" "Well, the band was great but some guy died on the dancefloor."
  11:41am rw:

Good morning! Woke up to the country music about country music set of country music. Cracked me up a bit.
  11:41am Mark R:

Reminds me of one of my favorite Hunter Thompson passages from "Fear & Loathing": "We were delayed in traffic when the car in front of us killed a pedestrian."
Avatar 11:42am Sem:

Hearing this, and having read Steven Van Zandt's bio yesterday, prompts this:

"Van Zandt married actress Maureen Santoro in New York City on December 31, 1982. She later portrayed his wife in The Sopranos. Bruce Springsteen was the best man at the ceremony, which was presided over by Little Richard and featured Percy Sledge singing "When a Man Loves a Woman". -wikithingy

@Mark R
When you see this gentlemen perform live at home, they go for hours and hours and hours. The arbitrary restrictions of the recording industry and of performance venues in the western world have forced things down to much shorter durations.
  11:43am Mark R:

This is cool, but now I REALLY want to hear "Papa's New Bag Ain't Nothing But a Hag."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Doug Schulkind:
