    If you like, post some records you enjoy.

    Anybody looking for more good times, listen to some of this. Get a bottle of wine or a scotch and enjoy this on some nice speakers. Living...

    Modern jazz needs a bullet in the back of the head imo.









    This thread is just your way of telling people you've got no soul...



    This is the good stuff mate.

    I'm sorry it's just when people stick the word 'modern' in front of something it makes me feel ill. Whatever musicians get from playing the modern stuff, and it definitely feels narcissistic, it really doesn't really translate to the audience. Considering the ability of jazz to really reach people I find this kind of thing utterly cock blocking stuff..

    Mate don't fucking neg rep me because you don't agree with my opinion. Say what you have to say in this thread and learn to be a man you flid.


    I don't know what you see in the more pretentious jazz wank stuff. I mean for starters where's the groove gone? If it ain't about dancing what he fuck is it about?

    You're passionate about the classic era of jazz, and willing to discount modern jazz, neg rep deserved.

    It's not though and you still haven't replied back to my question. If it's not about the groove...and it sure as hell isn't about a crowd pleasing melody...then what's left of the music? Everything that made jazz such an infectious art form has been stripped from the music. It appears to be a in joke made by some musicians at the expense of the listeners.

    Please explain what you get from solos that you can't tap your foot to or hum?

    seriously, I think its not any different than jimi hendrix. he mastered his talent and was able to have his own voice on the guitar. same thing.

    Jimi was certainly innovative but he didn't take the music so far that it was difficult to recognise what he wrote as music. Modern jazz is so easily parodied precisely because of this and because it deliberately stays away from the elements that make music so popular in the first place. The fact that you haven't dealt with that point despite me raising it three times suggests that you can't answer it.

    America's infatuation with modernism/post-modernism absolutely ruined jazz imo.

    Liking a bit of Harold Johnson as of late, its not 'modern' but who cares, plus latin Jazz is the best of both worlds

    jaros is being strangely hostile in regards to this modern-jazz issue, not like you to spazz like that david, whats going on? bit of a heartfelt issue, is it? many a sunday dinner spent arguing the finer points of jazz in the jaros family residence? its music david, its subjective, there is no 'point', i wouldve thought that was obvious
