Last Tuesday, I featured “Blues” Part One and where I gathered all the songs that specifically start with the word “Blues” and feature them on the “Super Tuesday Jazz Presentation.” I couldn’t fit them all into the three hours, so here you have Part Two, enjoy!

Note: (The “Super Tuesday Jazz Presentation broadcasts 3 Times every Tuesday): From 3AM to 6AM, from 12PM to 3PM and from 8PM to 11PM (All Times are New York EDT)

Jazz comes from the Blues and there’s no better indicator than Jazz tunes that start with the word “Blues.” That’s why I decided to gather all the songs that specifically start with the word “Blues” and feature them on this weeks “Super Tuesday Jazz Presentation.” This would only be “Part One” and next week I will prepare the second part and of course, without repeating any songs. I’m not 100 percent sure but from looking through the enormous Jazz Con Class Radio library, there will probably be a “Part Three.” I hope all the listeners will enjoy it and they probably will!

A very interesting article by Greg Tivis (GregTivis.com):

Jazz and Blues—Who Knew!

Jazz and blues are often referred to as cousins. Many believe jazz came out of the blues, or that jazz has its roots in the blues. Actually jazz and blues are like brothers, they grew up side by side.

By definition, blues is both a musical form and a music genre, while jazz is defined as a musical art form. The blues refers to both a certain type of chord progression and a genre built on this form. Jazz is much harder to define because its range is so broad, encompassing everything from late 19th century ragtime to modern fusion music.

Jazz and blues may have different definitions, but they have a lot in common. Both jazz and blues originated in the deep south around the end of the 19th century. The blues came out of the African-American communities, from their work songs, spirituals, field chants and hollers. The blues is characterized by its chord progression, the use of flattened or bent notes or “blue notes”, and its sad and melancholy lyrics.

In the beginning the blues was purely the music of the black people of the south, had several forms, and was generally played slow and sad. But by the twenties, due to the popularity of African-American blues singers like Bessie Smith, the 12 bar blues became the standard form of the blues and sub-genres like “jumpin’ blues” began to emerge. Since that time many hybrid forms of the blues have developed including rock blues and even punk blues.

Jazz came out of those same southern African-American communities at the same time, but was the result of the combining of African and European music. From the beginning jazz has always incorporated popular music of the time, and it is characterized by the use of blue notes, improvisation, syncopation, and what was coined the “swung note.” The term jazz encompasses early New Orleans Dixieland jazz, the big band music of the swing era, bebop, Latin jazz, fusion, acid jazz, funk, hip hop, and of course, the blues.

In the early part of the 20th century jazz and blues quickly spread up the Mississippi and all across the country and became the popular music of the day. Cities like Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, and New York City became hotbeds of jazz and blues. As these African-American creations became popular with the general population, writers began to put these previously unwritten songs down on paper.

With the invention of the phonograph, this great and original music was captured for all time and broadcast across the land through another new medium called radio. The rising popularity of jazz and blues and its subsequent off springs led us quite naturally to the big band era, and overnight hundreds of dance orchestras popped up all over the land. Thanks to jazz and blues the Golden Era of Big Band music flourished and America had found its own voice.

Today there are more musical genres in the U.S. than one can count, and many if not all have been influenced in one way or another by jazz and blues…….Learn More

This Jazz presentation will concentrate on “Love” and songs that have word “Love” in its title. And of course, relate to love and the meaning it truly has. All the ups and downs, all the real love and the pretended love. All the joys of being in Love and all the heartbreaks of feeling it will never work. From “What is this thing called love” to “The Look of love” to “Star-Crossed lovers” to “Perpetual Love” to “Almost like being in love” to “Falling in love with love” to “What now my Love?” to “The End of a love affair” to “What Love?”  All sorts of situations concerning love that we have all experienced or are experiencing at the present moment. Songs that can help us all understand love and its importance. Songs that can help us cope with a Love affair and songs that can prepare us in case we never been in love. Songs that can be very therapeutic for many listeners and songs that will be a reality check for others. Everyone feels love differently and adopts to it in their own way but it must be mutual for both to work. Yes, Love can be complicated but who said it was ever going to be easy?

Last week the Super Tuesday Jazz Presentation concentrated on Jazz tunes that started with the word “Blue” and this week’s presentation will be concentrate with songs that start with the word “Blues.” It’s amazing how many Jazz songs have the word “Blue” and “Blues but it shouldn’t be surprising because Jazz derives from the Blues. It is structured in format differently but contains the Blues. Like I did last week, I only placed the songs that start with the word “Blues” not including those that don’t necessarily contain the word “Blues” in it. The Jazz Con Class listeners will enjoy this presentation also, every song is handpicked and are great. But this is not so difficult for Jazz fans to judge, every traditional/classic Jazz tune is extraordinary, my goal is to place them in an order where it will flow best. Check the Schedule Link for play times. ENJOY!

Note: Please excuse the introduction, this Jazz Presentation will be 3 Hours and Half.
