Sweet Jazz for Sweet Scribbles

Miles Davis playing trumpet

“I’ll play it first and tell you what it is later.” – Miles Davis

Not all writers prefer it, but music can be calming, a tune to write to, sometimes even inspirational.  I’ve been listening to a lot of jazz lately, and really enjoying writing with it smoothing out the background, my pencil scribbles lining up with the bass and sway of trumpet notes cradling the surreal state of inspiration.

Music doesn’t always get the ink spilling for me, but lately, this jazz has been doing it.  Maybe it’ll do the same for.

In spirit of the quote above (“I’ll play it first and tell you what it is later”), here’s some soul.

 

Any quintessential jazz artists I missed that you find helpful for your writing?  Post links in the comment section below!
