The jazz experience encompasses many genres. Some are tied to a specific era while others tend to be timeless, always fresh on delivery no matter their vintage. One broad category is often known as "straight ahead" or "mainstream". While there are many sub-genres and localizations, this expansive descriptor encompasses the time-tested aspects of jazz that so far lack an expiration date. In this hour, we will dig the classic sound of straight ahead jazz from generations ago and recent times.
