Music series (6) - Jazz it up

Jazz is an odd duck in this series. Certain criteria must be met for it to not register as noise half the time. Nevertheless I used to frequent a jazz bar in Amsterdam. It’s one of my favorite places in the world because it made me feel alive during a time where it was difficult to feel much of anything. Jazz music electrifies the air. You can cut the atmosphere with a knife; it’s tangible. It’s invigorating. It‘s just incredible because it’s so visceral.

I have no single recommendation today. Jazz is best experienced in the flesh. If the reader desires to understand why I listen to it at all, they must visit some local dive with live jazz music and experience it for themselves. For an alternative, play any of the Fallout games (my vote goes to Fallout New Vegas with mods to make it look better).
