The new monthly series "Milestones Of Jazz" chronicles original versions of jazz standards and the most notable remakes. The first release features the Herbie Hancock and the Headhunter's jazz/funk/fusion classic "Chameleon" www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6ozyKD63aE.
Milestones Of Jazz is the brain child of New Orleans based jazz musicians Jason and Jamaal Amos. Future releases will include Mr. Magic (Grover Washington jr.), Put It Where You Want It (The Crusaders) and Birdland (Weather Report).
Jazz critic James JJ Johnson comments on the first release: "The comparison between the original 1973 Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters version of Chameleon and the 2010 Eastbay Messengers version is inspiring"
"I love this concept!" jazz/funk bassist Paul Jackson
