This forum is dying. The only thread that gets consistent activity is the one where we tell others what we happen to be listening to at the moment. As someone has remarked, "So what?" (not to be confused with the Miles Davis tune).
We used to have lively discussions, even arguments and fights. Insults flew around the forum. What fun! Even the return of the sock puppet would be better than the drab postings of the last few weeks.
So, in an attempt to generate some interesting discussions, I've started this thread. Here is the premise:
1. You've just opened a new jazz club in your city.
2. You are the person responsible for booking artists into the club.
3. You have an unlimited budget, so you don't care whether anyone shows up to hear the music, except for yourself. There will be no cover and no minimum.
4. The club has a great bar and wonderful food.
5. The size of the club is sufficient to book large groups if you wish to do so, but is intimate and accoustics are good enough for solo performances as well.
6. The sound system is superb, and you record live performances for future release.
So, what are the first three groups you would book into your club and why. Please limit your entry to no more than THREE GROUPS. They need not be working bands, but all musicians must be currently alive and performing activitely.
If you can cite some recordings that would indicate why you picked these groups, that would be so much the better.
Thanks for your participation. Feedback on your selections from others on this forum is encouraged.
