I just got off a cruise ship, and I introduced myself to the jazz band/show band. I asked if they could play some Trad Jazz, and they said that was crap music. LOL! They play the more sophisticated stuff in the bebop genre. LOL!

Oh well, at least I asked. They were all from the Ukraine and were very good. I enjoyed listening to them.

I would assume since they dismiss trad jazz, they can't play it.

Every where you go, you only see Old Fogey's watching trad jazz, but there are a lot of young kids out there swing dancing to the trad jazz songs, so there might be somewhat of a turn around heading our way. Who knows?

Oh, Yes please! We badly need another Revival!

Well, it looked to me that they played only from charts. They just need a good arranger, but since their attitude towards trad jazz is what it is, I don't think that's going to happen. It was the leader of the band (sax) that expressed that to me.
