it seems like nobody cares about jazz music anymore. they think its all about rap and pop rock or whatever but without jazz and legends like Ella Fitzgerald there would be no modern music scene. thats why i dig this Ella Fitzgerald album that just came out called "Love Letters From Ella". It has some collaborations with Count Basie and the London Symphony Orchestra. it sounds great too because its in hi-def audio. do yourselves a favor and check it out sometime.
Re: unheard jazz
It's a great album. I LOVE jazz (and a lot of other forms of music, but I listen to jazz daily)

I have my parents to thank for introducing me to Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Dave Brubeck. I inherited some good albums from my parents.
