    how do all these producers do it? it seems that jazz is really fast or really slow. i mean, do they speed the tracks up like bob james' angela in cabfare, or do they find little pieces of music that are faster or slower than others?

    a lot of it is chopping... if you chop, its pretty easy to get the tempo to match whatever you want.

    a lot of them pitch up though, just by playing records at 331/3 on the tt.

    what all these guys said is true ,
    but, you shouldnt feel dumb mang

    jazz is notorious for odd time signatures and off ass beats,

    not to mention, a live jazz track is rarely (or never) a set tempo.

    so,i can see where you might run into some trouble lockin in yer samps and what not with it,

    I feel you. Jazz music has a lot of variation and art into it. Too me jazz is the most work when chopping. Not hard though. Usually you get the illiest vibe when you done with it. You got to throw a lot your music theory knowledge to the wind, cause a lot of that ish organic; off time signature, but on purpose. Miles and them are geniuses, Nah Mean
