    Share whatcha got.

    Wigdick related because this is actually a cool music genre, not the weak-ass-pussy stuff he listens to...

    i love the crap out of jazz. i went from 100% rock and roll to 75% jazz.






    the list is endless. every time i listen to pandora i find 5 new artists that i love.

    i like space music too. new age, what ever it's called these days. camel, van der graff generator, oregon...

    so much music, so little time. :)

    If you ever have some time for a long listen, check this out

    This is probably the best jazz album ever made IMO

    I am a Bill Evans mark and love Charlie Haden. Beyond the Missouri Sky with Pat Metheny is one of my 3 favorite albums regardless of genre

    Charlie Parker is my favorite musician with an instrument in his hand.

    Ella Fitzgerald is my favorite voice of all-time.

    i never thought i'd get into jazz but then the used cd store was selling a ton of used Blue Note cds a few years ago and I picked them all up just for the hell of it (they were cheap and the covers are cool). turns out I like jazz.

    I like the smoky sounding slower jazz usually more than fast stuff or weird free jazz

    I know this is probably stupid to say to real jazz guys but the soloing gets to be too much sometimes.

    I realize that's the overall point of jazz but often I just really like the head and the melody and don't need 8 minutes of soloing. some songs should be shorter in my stupid opinion.

    I listen to the Sound Opinions podcast once in a while. the hosts can be a bit annoying and I usually don't even care about the music they talk about too much but overall I like the show.

    they just did a Rock Fan's Guide To Jazz which might interest some people
