This thread is for the archiving of, application for and discussion of Blues and Jazz Albums of the Month (AOTM).

How it works:


1. Post here saying which month you will write up an AOTM for and whether, broadly, it will be Jazz or Blues. If there is some confusion over genre, ask in here. Hopefully we will have a jazz album AND a blues album each month, so you can pick to do either. (or both if you're mad! )

2. Post your AOTM as a THREAD in the main B&J forum on the 1st of the month you selected and I will sticky it for the duration of that month. Once that month is up it will be added to the archive and the next months piece will be stickied.

I'll do blues in July or August, and I'll do jazz in June, then.

Someone do a review of Kind of Blue. I would but I'm no good at reviews

Heres' a quicky:

Good album, interesting, catchy tunes, overrated. Coltrane's A Love Supreme is a better display of Modal jazz, IMO, and Miles' best playing, IMO, is on The Birth of Cool.

I'd like to do the next available Blues piece please.

If you want to do Jazz then yes, blues will have to be the next month (September)

Technically no, as someone is signed up. however, I have my doubts about them actually writing it so if you had one ready, that would be ace.

Oh sorry, dude. I got mixed up, it's the jazz AOTM we need - gooley's doing blues.

So yeah, if you want to do jazz that's fine - otherwise blues will have to wait till september.

If I can have September I'd greatly appreciate that, but if Strawforest wants it he can have it, I'm not really in much of a hurry.
