hurrah!!!  I'm so glad you like it!!  When I first became obsessed with jazz and blues, I picked up as many cds as I could (afford...) and found some really amazing artists that I never would have heard of.  I'm just glad I could share them with you, Spiderdust and GreatBallofFire!

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

Okay, so I am planning on adding more Jazz/Blues to my collection (yes, even after this swap!!)  Who are some of the really good artists?

Ok, my favorite by far is Nina Simone.  She's really a stylistic vocalist who covered many genres, but I think she fits into "Jazz" nicely, as well as Jazz sub-genres and Blues.  She has a huge collection of recordings and has influenced many of today's artists.  You can't go wrong with her.  Enough gushing... Grin

Also in jazz, I really like Duke Ellington, anything from the kind of speakeasy-sounding 20's & 30's to his later stuff, Miles Davis, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday & Ella Fitzgerald.  You can never go wrong with Louis Armstrong either.

As for Blues, my fav. is Taj Mahal.  Most of his stuff has a earthy, bluesy vibe to it, but he can get really funky.  He also covers many genres, from reggae to folk.

Other then Taj, I like really early blues, the kind of sitting on your front porch pickin' style. Mississippi John Hurt, Leadbelly & Bukka White come to mind. 

Alright, that's my two cents.  Have a lot of fun discovering new stuff!   Smiley

P.S. bubba*tink- I love your cd so much, I just had to tell you again.  I've been listening to it loads!

As well as a second round of this swap, which I hope to hold in early June (after exams, why is everything planned around school?!?!), I'd like to organise a similar swap called Jazzy Jazz, Bluesy Blues, which works around this concept:

In the old days when blues was fresh and jazz outrageous, they sang at bars like folk songs. There were no big deals about copyright and covers. They sang popular stuff that everyone knew, interpreting it as they wished. A jazzy CD which must have two interpretations of one song - what do you guys think?

I need to resend to twowished - parcel got lost in the post grrr - and Ianna I'll sort out your angel feedback when I'm back from holidays. (I'm in Vancouver!)

OTHERWISE, THANK YOU EVERYBODY! THIS SWAP HAS BEEN SO FUN, AND IT'S BEEN SO AMAZING BEING PUT INTO CONTACT WITH ALL YOU LADIES OF FABULOUS MUSICAL TASTE!!!

Thank you for being great participants & angel!

Love,Anushka xxxxx
