ABOUT

jp

I really like music….especially jazz and most of it’s different styles, eras, off-shoots, and derivatives. This blog contains thoughts on shows I’ve attended, album reviews, record scores, and random reflections related to jazz.  I’m not a jazz critic or a jazz musician, just someone who likes to share musical experiences with others who may share my interests.

The name of this blog, Jazz Orbits, was not my first choice, but I like jazz and I like outer space. I like spacey cosmic jazz, the unknown, and discovery.  I like vibrations and rhythm. Some of my favorite music circles the jazz world without ever directly entering into it. And, of course, there’s a great Wayne Shorter song entitled “Orbits” on Miles Davis’ Miles Smiles LP.

Most posts feature Pittsburgh-based jazz projects and performances.  I don’t consider this exclusively a Pittsburgh music blog but I happen to live here presently and I try to absorb as much of the local scene as possible (which is not nearly as much as I’d like). Feel free to comment on anything written about here.  Enjoy!
