別再陷入「不可不聽」榜單中:輕鬆入門爵士樂的三個好方法

爵士樂,是一個很適合行銷的名字,近年來在台灣各地,常能看到大大小小的爵士樂活動,大至整個縣市政府主辦的爵士音樂節,或各類藝文活動為力求多元,往往也開始列出希望邀請爵士樂團的慣例;小至各類商業活動的宣傳造勢,也常見爵士樂的搭配—現場演奏演唱,或甚至是小型據點的社區或文化館所舉辦音樂會時,往往也因為爵士樂團的機動性高、配合度高、營造出的輕鬆愜意氣氛等,較為一般大眾所接受。<p>然而爵士樂,卻也是一個令人頭痛的名字,特別是在想深入認識她,或甚至想要進一步學習如何演奏、演唱時,往往會因為找不到要領而事倍功半。尤其近年來在網路資訊發達的狀況之下,相信不少人也了解到:爵士樂最精髓的部份,往往也是最難學好的部份, …
