Jazz/Jump-what is it??was Dennis Gruenling

Thanks for all the responses, I'll definately have to gets me some Dennis
I have been exploring "Blue Skies" in 12th position on my Ab diatonic
today, and different positions on the chromatic for a while now. Is there
some kind of ~jazz progression logic~ that will make it easier for me to
ingrain note selections that are new territory for me? I think if I find
the key that unlocks the door to this mode of playing, it would bring me a
lot of personal fun as well as make me a better harp player when I play
the blues. I am also a little confused on what is jump? I have read there
was some kind of jump bandwagon in the past, but it didn't come to
missouri! Is it a jazz style with a name( like there are different styles
of blues-chicago, piedmont, delta, etc)? I like some things I hear on a
jazz radio station but a LOT of it absolutely makes me sick or have a
headache. I don't have a lot of c.d.'s, but a couple of songs I have been
working out my Bb 270 on from a compilation disc are the previously
mentioned Estrin song "Coastin' Hank," and William Clarke's "Blowin' like
Hell". I am intrigued by the note selection since I have been strictly a
chicago-style student. Thanks in advance for all the help/advice.
