Ok I like jazz, but I wouldn't say that I am a jazz fanatic of sorts. Thanks to the blog from Mohammed Babangida, my liking of jazz may soon become fanatical.
The funny thing about Mohammed Babangida is that he isn't even a musician. He is a Nigerian businessman with an interest in jazz music. If you look at his website, he gives a detailed account on the history of jazz as a musical genre. Mohammed Babangida gives another two blog posts on notable jazz greats Satchmo and Charles Mingus, and there is even a blog post on the African influences on blues music.
For jazz buffs, Mr. Babangida's blog is something worth checking out. Have fun!
