The Many Faces Of Jazz, Timeless Classics VOL. VIII, the new CD From Houstone Records; has 30 songs representing a wide range of Jazz styles highlighting the popularity of today’s Jazz music. Today the common classification of jazz is songs with 75/60% instrumental and 25/40% Vocals.

The Timeless Classics series takes on the most distinctly American genre of music in May with the highly anticipated release of The Many Faces of Jazz.

Like other releases in the series, this eighth collection from HousTone Records aims to connect listeners with up-and-coming artists they may not be aware of.

“It’s a whole new approach to finding music you like and didn’t know,” said HousTone general manager Sirron Kyles. “Music lovers have a variety of technology options on how they can enjoy and find new music today, but it’s never been harder to explore new jazz options.”

The Many Faces Of Jazz: Timeless Classics, Vol. VIII has 30 songs representing a wide range of jazz styles that highlight the popularity of today’s jazz music. New artists perform old favorites – and slip in a couple originals, as well.

The collection will release on May 12, but pre-orders begin on May 5. Ordering information can be found at

Jazz originated in New Orleans in the early 1900s and is characterized by strong, prominent meter; improvisation; distinctive tones; performance techniques; and dotted or syncopated rhythmic patterns. Purists will reject anything that doesn’t fit this description.

But in the past century, jazz has grown beyond its bayou origins. Many artists who have roots in jazz, usually through their school band, have gone on to become top rock, pop, and R & B stars whose jazz influences can be heard in the music they record. It works the other way, too — every style of music can be interpreted and performed as jazz.

Popular radio programs in the 1980s like “Quiet Storm,” “Smooth Jazz,” “All That Jazz” and others helped spread the appeal and re-branded jazz to reach a broader audience to change how jazz is perceived today. This undertaking continues with the release of The Many Faces Of Jazz: Timeless Classics, Vol. VIII.

Today, the common classification of jazz is songs with 60-75 percent instrumental and 25-40 percent vocals.

The CD has smooth jazz, down tempo jazz, rock jazz, vintage, Latin jazz, Afro-Cuban jazz, big band, jazz fusion, world beat jazz, classical jazz, ragtime, acid jazz, avant-garde, contemporary, Dixieland, gospel jazz and jazz rap. The Many Faces Of Jazz: Timeless Classics, Vol. VIII has something for all jazz music lovers to enjoy.

This allows many up-and-coming artists to be judged by fans for the talent they have, based on music the listeners already know. From these selections, we select songs that match the theme and release them to expose this music to the fans who want it.
