Lazy Day...

Spending the day Searching for Music on Kazaa
in my PJ and nerdy Specs and bed-hair for the entire day ,
browsing and searching for the Genre of the type of Music..
According to a website, its defined as follow:

Nu-jazz (sometimes electro-jazz) was coined in the late 1990s to refer to styles which combine jazz textures and sometimes jazz instrumentation with electronic music. Like the term electronica, nu jazz is a loosely defined umbrella musical style.

It ranges from the infusion of live instrumentation to house beats of jazz house exemplified by French St Germain and German Jazzanova; to more band-based improvised jazz with electronic elements such as that of the British Cinematic Orchestra, and the Norwegian future jazz style pioneered by Bugge Wesseltoft.

Nu-jazz typically ventures farther into the electronic territory than does its close cousin, acid jazz (or groove jazz), which is generally closer to earthier funk,
soul and rhythm and blues, although releases from noted groove jazz artists such as the Groove Collective blur the distinction between the styles.
