Jazz Ain't Dead® Recommendations for
Young Urban Adults


ARE YOU A PRODUCT OF THE MTV HIP HOP GENERATION?


Do you find that you only like hip hop and pop songs from the late 80's and 90's, but are too embarrassed to relate (or just can't relate) to the little girl "milk shakes" and "lollipop" lyrics of the 21st Century?  As you listen to the radio, do you find yourself covering your ears, sick of auto-tune and constantly say to yourself, "Who writes this stuff" or "They just don't make good songs like they use to?" 

Have you grown up, but the type of music that you have been growing up to listening hasn't?

WE HEAR YOU!


These
days if you were alien from Mars listening to the lyrics on the radio, you would think you'd buy CDs and mp3's at a candy store or a Brooklyn Bodega!  JAD knows there's nothing like a live show, listening to live musicianship, and watching trained dancers jam to music even they love.  That is why Jazz Ain't Dead came to be... music productions for Young Urban Adults who are real music connoisseurs, by Young Urban Adult real music connoisseurs. 

We ourselves are direct products of the MTV hip hop generation from its infancy with a vast appreciation for live instrumentation, vocals, and concert dance; however, as we as artists mature, perform all over the world, and continue to educate ourselves in the fine and performing arts, we find ourselves unable to completely satisfy our sophisticated tastes from what we all know is currently force fed in today's pop culture.  Jazz, on the other hand, is timeless and the audience born in the jazz generation have never “grown out of” or found themselves too old for its structure and mature artistic delivery; classic jazz in its purity has always grown alongside its generations of the connoisseurs it conceived.  Unfortunately, this, among other things, curbed jazz music’s evolution and created a large generation gap.  In order to close that gap and bring jazz into the 21st Century, we now look into what makes classics timeless, pop songs pop, and new songs extraordinary, and that passion for this understanding is what compels our group, Jazz Ain’t Dead, to help jazz evolve and create new arrangements that younger audiences will enjoy.

To meet the urban savvy tastes of today's young mobile adults, we perform original songs of Jazz fusion derivative of neo-soul and house sounds, top 40 pop and R&B re-imagined with jazz sensibilities, and new arrangements of classic jazz standards performed to the rhythms of house, acid jazz, funk, and soul.

JAZZ AIN'T DEAD Presents: The JAD Café is our set designed for smaller venues. Like the JAD Lounge, this set features intimate performances of our artists doing original songs composed exclusively for Jazz Ain't Dead and by our own Chris Rob and Teodross Avery, plus funky new arrangements of classic jazz, and top R&B covers re-imagined into a jazz-inspired sound. Please note that the JAD Café is not a full show like Standards on Steroids, Porgy & Bess, or Nu Soundz, Nu Grooves, but a low-key presentation with only two to four musicians and a select number of dancers.
