Cultures have long heard wisdom in non-human voices: Apollo, god of music, medicine and knowledge, came to Delphi in the form of a dolphin. But dolphins, which fill the oceans with blipping and chirping, and whales, which mew and caw in ultramarine jazz – a true rhapsody in blue – are hunted to the edge of silence. Ironically, the only truly indigenous American art form has been similarly pushed to the edge of extinction, with fewer artists participating in lovingly crafting the sounds of traditional Jazz every year. 2015 marks a landmark shift in the tastes of the American public, for the first time ever Jazz has become the least popular musical style on the planet. According to album sales, online sales from Amazon.com, iTunes, and streaming media requests from Pandora, Rhapsody, and Spotify, Jazz took last place, with even children’s novelty albums receiving a higher market share. Do your part for the conservation program, listen to more jazz today, and enrich your life and the lives of those around you with the neurally stimulating complex harmonies, virtuosic melodies, and cosmos of rhythmic variety found in this beautiful musical form.
