Question of the Week: “What is your favorite style of music and who are some of your favorite performers?” (Asked Sunday at the Palmer Square JazzFeast)
David: “Well, I love contemporary jazz, especially R&B style, people like Will Downing and others, his genre. Will is smooth and contemporary, but it’s jazz.” Tiffany: “My music taste is very eclectic, so I kind of pick from everywhere, and right now, I’m really liking Mumford and Sons, but I really do appreciate jazz. Every once in a while, I put on the “Smooth Jazz” channel on Pandora Internet Radio.”
—David and Tiffany Rodriguez, Princeton
“I guess at heart, I’m a jazz fan, but I have kids, so I have to keep up with hip-hop, as well. As far as jazz goes though, I am a big traditionalist. I love John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Roy Hargrove, and Wynton Marsalis. With hip-hop, I’m all over the map, but right now, Kendrick Lamar is my big guy.
—Steven Healy, Princeton
“I think that Bria Skonberg is the next Diana Krall.”
