Live Preview |1/30 Jazzman: Cao Liu Quartet

January 30, 2021 @ 9:30 pm 11:30 pm

Jazz is like a conversation




JAZZMAN: CAO LIU Quartet 1/30


E.Taylor. Atkins once said in his book ‘Blues Nippon’: “The emergence of Bebop, completely changed the history of the music in Japan. For audience with more music knowledge, Bebop is more like an art form of music, it changed the teen culture at that time. This new form of sound quickly replaced disco, and started fashionable coffee shops and gatherings after work,”

Traditional Jazz Is just repeating same rhythm timelessly, this does not fit what Yoko Kanno hoped for, when soloing, only focus on a performer but ignoring others does not fit his ideal either. Improvising and casual, fast tempo and complicated rhythms need to be through of the Jazz live all along no matter what happens, it happens. Every musician is freely expressing one’s self, and started improvising, real Jazz is more like a conversation. Isolated, but public, have sentiments of funk and soul, all these emotions profiled jazz nicely.
