Sarcastic List of Ways Jazz Can Build Audiences and Remain Relevant

Over on Ian Carey's blog, a sarcastic post was posted about some of the discussions happening online about the state of jazz today, which I found pretty funny.

You can check out the post [HERE], so I won't put all the points but here are a few:
- Reinvigorate jazz by incorporating elements of rock, hiphop, Salsa, polka, Bluegrass, Tango, Death Metal, Tibetan throat-singing, New Wave, Death Bluegrass, Drum and Bass, Drum and Bass and Mariachi, Thrash Electro-Industrial Housegrass, anything with tubas, the “Dukes of Hazzard” Theme, jazz, and Paul Anka.

- Book non-jazz acts to headline every major jazz festival in the U.S. for several years, until audiences forget what jazz is

- Save yourself the time and effort of practicing by just running “Kind of Blue” through the house speakers while your band pretends to play
