I enjoy at least some of most genres, except rap. Don't get upset if rap's your thing. I feel the way Ray Charles did about it. He said that if he were fifteen, he would be doing rap. But, he said, it doesn't touch my heart.

Ska is pretty good. I love this version of a Deep Purple classic.



And Reel Big Fish's version of Take On Me is so much better than the boyband original.



Then again I've always liked skinhead music.

Funk, 70’s rock, jazz fusion

1. I am also a huge fan of Funk. Especially during the 1970s through the mid 1980s.

2. Some of my favorite funk groups included Lakeside, Bar-kays, Con Funk Shun, Cameo,
Parliament Funkadelic, Brick, Slave, Kool & the Gang, Ohio Players, and many other funk groups.

3. I also like some of the 70s rock. It was primarily 70s pop rock.

4. Because Jazz music has so many sub-genres, I had to look up jazz fusion to see if I was familiar with the genre.

5. After looking it up, I discovered that I was somewhat familiar with jazz fusion.

6. Some of my favorite jazz fusion included the song "Chameleon" by Herbie Hancock.

7. Another favorite jazz fusion song included the song "John's Song #2" by Mahavishnu Orchestra.

@oralloy,
1. Based on your post, it appears that your favorite genres are heavy metal and hard rock.

2. It also appears that you are a big fan of any sub-genres of heavy metal and hard rock.

3. Although, these genres aren't my particular cup of tea, there have been a few songs I've enjoyed and liked that may or may not be part of the genres you listed.

4. I don't know if any of the following songs would fall under any of the genres you listed, maybe hard rock.

5. One of my favorites included the song "Black Diamond" by KISS.

6. Another one of my favorites included the song "Rock and Roll all Night" by Kiss

7. Another one of my favorites included the song "I Love Rock n' Roll" by Joan Jett

8. Another one of my favorites included the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana

9. Some of my other favorites included the songs ""You Give Love a Bad Name", "Livin' on a Prayer", and "Wanted Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovi.

Just a few favorites:

1. The song "Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks is a great country song and has become an audience participation sing along song.

2. The song "Ballad Of Jed Clampett" by Bela Fleck & The Flecktones sounds like they fused bluegrass, R&B, hip hop, and jazz all into one song.

3. The song "Now that we found love" by Third World sounds like R&B, funk, and reggae fused together

4. "Minnie the Moocher" by Cab Calloway is definitely one of all time favorite big band songs.

Here is one of my favorite piano Boogie-Woogie video with some great improvisation.
Watching three people playing together on one piano while totally improvising the entire time they are playing.
That is a joy to watch.

@Real Music,
Thanks man!

Not sure if you've seen this or bumped into the incredible stuff that Postmodern Jukebox has been doing (ps... the lady on the right, Morgan James, is Juilliard trained as an opera singer. Everything she does is extraordinary)



Here's another that I dearly love



Here's background data on the PMJ project. Scott Bradlee, the genius behind it, is the pianist on that last video.

@Real Music,
never knew that the Ballqd of Jed Clampett was by Bela Flek. Ive got several Flektone and Zappa playlists on Flash drives so I could play in the Boat.

@Real Music,
My single fav of the Big Band beat is "Sing Sing Sing' done with the drum styling of Krupa. My best cut was done and Ive got a master done in 1948 and was an experimental LP at 33.3 rpm record

@farmerman,
Of course the original performers of The Ballad of Jed Clampett was done by Flat and Scruggs. Coincidentally, I found a Bela Fleck CD with it in my collection. I love the jazz modern twist to it.
