Why I pick the 50’s and early 60’s

When it comes to Oldies, my favorites are from the very early days as Rhythm & Blues and Doo Wop gradually morphed into Rock ‘n Roll and became the music of teenagers. I cut it off at the early 60’s because I think The Beatles, and the rest of the “British Invasion” changed Rock ‘n Roll forever. And not necessarily for the better, in some profound ways.

I am open to and, in fact, encourage debate on this. If I am going to offer up my opinions (e.g. no dead-teenager songs) then everybody else gets to offer his or her own. That’s what this is all about. Sharing our likes, dislikes and memories of the music that has been the background to our lives.

Come on in and sit anywhere!

Welcome! We are here to talk about Music. I have music playing almost all the time. While the title says Jazz, I am a fan of Classical, Big Band, Swing, Rock ‘n Roll Oldies, Doo Wop, and even some of the old classic Country.  This is a place to share opinions, memories, sources and resources. Take a look around, speak your mind and let us know what YOU are listening to.
