Modern Music

There were a lot of people hanging around from Radiothon at WHUS this week while I was doing this show. One person was listening and was intrigued by the music. He hadn't heard anything like it before and asked me, "What do you call this music?” I hesitated while thinking about how to answer; post-bop, post-modern jazz, fusion? None of these really would have made sense to this person. Finally I said modern jazz. But as I think of it more, and I listen to some of the music, especially the Donny McCaslin set, it doesn't even have that much resemblance to jazz, or rock, or anything else. Just a reference to jazz can give someone the wrong (and possibly a negative) impression. From now on, when I am asked that question I am just going to call it Modern Music.
