Music Deathmatch: Jazz or Blues?
« on: July 20, 2019, 11:11:26 PM »
I've been to New Orleans a few times and I've now spent time in Memphis. From the airport to the restaurants to the atmosphere in the streets, I now know I prefer the sound of any generic unfamiliar Blues tune more than New Orleans Dixieland Jazz. Wondering about the opinions of others.

It doesn't really make sense to me to compare Blues to Jazz, because Jazz is so much more diverse and expansive a category that it's hard to pin down exactly what it sounds like.

I voted jazz but I don't know that I'd vote for dixie specicifally over blues, I like both a lot.

I voted for Blues because I feel like those are more likely to use lyrics than jazz, except I guess a lot of that new Kendrick TBAP and Anderson .Paak jazz infused hip-hop, which is largely trash and just such an uninteresting sound that feels like it holds back the lyricism.

I picked jazz because I’m more familiar with it.
But I do love me some blues...

Jazz for sure if only one can survive though jazz wouldn't be here without the blues I don't think

Had a great time listening to a bit of both over the weekend as clubs often like to do both

I suppose it depends on the kind of jazz.  But I'm generally a blueshead.
