Re: “Jazz Musicians Sing the Blues

Like oil and water, music and business don't mix. Music is an art, which in some forms, is enjoyed by only a handful of people, and even though they may enjoy it, they don't necessarily want to pay for it. Because it's not a necessity, most people think they can live just fine w/o music. Most people need toilet paper, not music. Which leads to the business end. Business is driven by supply and demand. The supply of Jazz musicians is high and the demand is low, for some. MY advice? Increase your demand! Do something different, something new and exciting. That's what the people want and that's what "Jazz" is about. Noone wants to hear someone attempt to play Donna Lee like Bird did 100 years ago. Noone really cares that you have you're own 7/8 arrangement for Giant Steps. As great as it is, people today don't really care. Do something that will increase your demand, make your music about today, give people something that they WOULD pay for, not something you think they SHOULD pay for.
