    Question Is there anybody who likes jazz?

    Hey guys.
    Is there anybody who admires jazz?
    I think it's kind of music which not everybody understand but lots of people like.
    Which doers you like most?
    Keep calm and use pebble tiles.

    from dixieland to bop to cool to extended improvisation i and many others around here love all kinds of jazz from all time periods, with some reservations such as certain types of fusion or elevator shit.

    but anyone who even remotely love or care about music would have a lot of respect for its legacy and understanding of its central importance in the evolution of modern music, even if they don't go home every night and rock out to Ornette Coleman

    personally these days i'm mostly listening to the quieter side of "avant garde". not nearly as much total out there mind bogglers or skronk as before. Also some "spiritual" "deep" stuff as well as all time greats that just keep endlessly giving and giving like Steve Lacy. A favorite at the moment is a pianist called Agustí Fernández.

    A while ago I used Woebot's list of the 100 best jazz albums to educate myself on the subject. I can really recommend that if you would be looking for a way in.

    The most surprising inclusion for me was probably Duke Ellington's Ellington Indigos. Not that Duke's place in jazz history is disputed. I was just blown away by the incredible lusciousness of it. It's a wonderfully sweet record.

    I know very little about it but buy and listen to lots.

    There is an almost unlimited amount from all corners of the world.

    best thread title in ages!

    btw, was there at any point ever a backlash to the backlash on acid jazz? zhao mentioned the consensus thumbs down on certain types of fusion and elevator shit, but i can't imagine it ever being cool to say you actually like acid jazz, even ironically. lots of people probably wouldn't even consider it to be "real" jazz.

    Well Acid Jazz basically killed the jazz dance movement, only to go out of style itself a few years later, so a backlash would only be inevitable.
