Sorry, it's not end of story at all. There's plenty of music i dislike and plenty music i do like. Only certain styles of Jazz make we want to stick large needles in my ears and start gouging. I have no idea why it makes me feel this way. There is more to it than just disliking it. Much more. It seems as though it may almost be at a neurological level.

Now I like all of them and write fusion music borrowing elements from each genre as I think they apply.

That is exactly how it affects me too...
I was laying awake last night, and it got light and i was listening to the birds.
call and answer, call, call , ,answer answer.
And I thought of all the composers that use this phrasing in their works.... a replication of what happens naturally in the world.
Then I realised that not one single bird "went off on one" in an unmelodic improvisation such as a jazz player might, and I thought hang on, could my problem be that jazz doesn't happen in the natural world?

we seem to be in a minority of 5 at the moment. lol Aha, maybe we could start our very own special club. A sort of elitist movement towards the melodic, where any hint of non -melodic form would be viewed with suspician. Knowing my luck there all ready will be a movement and I just haven't heard of it!! lol.

I will say I used to think like Rostosky until I started to jam a lot and doing interesting things with theory(on guitar because I am just starting with piano), when that happened I totally understood Jazz.

Think if it just like some guys having fun and doing interesting things/accidents !, when you ear it you don't have to try to make sense of it, just put attention on where those guys are going and how the armony moves, etc...

OK, now I get it.

A while back, I read an article on modern art. In it, the author, who was an art historian said that the reason that most people didn't care for modern nonrepresentational art was that it was art about art, as opposed to being art about life. Because most of us aren't that involved in art, modern nonrepresentational art looks like "ugly pieces of crap" (his term) to us.

So, I can see that the soloing/improvisation may well make sense to a jazz musician, it leaves most of the rest of us cold. It's basically jazz music taken to its farthest extreme. I also get the impression that many of the players are trying to "out-improvise" each other.

As far as smooth jazz goes, all I can say is that it's all fun and games until someone pulls out the wind chimes.

Thats IT !!
Thing is as well, modern Art, now funny enough I do not have a problem with modern art, for instance when Andy Warhol exhibited a pile of bricks, I thought "well you crafty sod, well done,it may be just a pile of bricks but you thought of it first, and if you can sell the establishment that, then good on you"

Tracy Emin, Hilarious , and such a lovely lady, Unmade bed?
yep we all have one of those, and I bet mine has got more stains, toast and marmalade crumbs than most,( and I found something in it last week that could have been there for years) but Tracy thought of it first , and well done that girl for selling it to the establishment.
Maybe the GUy who bought it seriously thought her panties were worth the very cheeky price tag, I dont know.
What I am sure of though is neither of these pieces of art hurt my eyes the way some jazz hurts my ears and brain.

Studio Joe, that works on so many levels!!
I did not realise that the whole video was 45 mins long, which I admit in hindsight was remiss of me.

However, after listening to five mins, my misses asked me what I was doing.
I told her I was listening to a youtube video that was teaching me how interestingly intellectual jazz actually is. (apparently)

After 15 mins, my misses asked me again what I was doing, and I told her I was listening to a youtube video that was teaching me how laboriously interesting jazz actually is. (apparently)

She then acused me of "untruthfull husband answers" pointing out that no youtube video usually lasts longer than 12 mins.

I now felt persecuted, after all I had the youtube jazz explanetry video in one ear and my misses in the other.

( I seriously hope no one else gets themselves in this particular predicament)

After Twenty mins of listening to the theoretically explanetry jazz video, I had nearly lost the will to live.
My misses asked again with added "rising wife tones" in her voice "what are you doing"

I was just about to answer "accidently commiting suicide love"
When she said "It's porn isn't it?" and went on to say, "why dont you just say, you know I don't mind"

I nearly answered "It is actually porn sweet one, but not as we know it" but chose not to in case she came over and disturbed me and inadvertantly caused me to have to watch the whole video again.

At 35 mins in to the mind numbing laborious theoretical explanetry lnstructional dialogue as to why my ears should accept this form of music as delightful, I began to make plans for the dispersal of my goods and chattels to my immediate dependants ,fearing my demise to be nearer than expected before viewing this video.

My wife, (having strange "lady intuition") asked me why I had turned gray and enquired as to "whats up with you then?"
She went on to state that "you were in a good mood before you went onto the internet" and finished by asking "what happened?"

I believe "what had happened" was that I had actually found something that was on a par with the most unpleasent procrastinations of mindless endless jazz improvisations,( to my ears and senses) vis a vie a seemingly mindless and apparently endless explanation.

Again with Hindsight, maybe it was in the very last five mins of the video that everything "resolved" and became one with the universe. I don't know, I could not take anymore,the nearest hospital with resuscitation equipment happens to be twenty miles away.

Rostosky! Interesting report you have there. As the great lover of Jazz I am, I managed about two minutes of that video - by jumping forward, listen for 10 seconds, and repeating the process a couple of times before I gave up, went over to the piano, put my brain on stand by, and enjoyed myself.
Whether people are playing Jazz to death, or talking it to death, I dont have to listen.

Rostosky, I laughed too.....and I listened to about 30 seconds of the video.

I don't like (most) jazz because I find it irritatingly unpredictable.
Or irritatingly repetitive.

There is a bit of jazz I like - mostly Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, some Duke Ellington -but a lot of jazz just makes me cranky.

My husband REALLY likes jazz and there are times when I just go to another room and let him enjoy his music. (I even BUY him records (yes, records) and CDs too, I just don't like listening to them for the most part).

Well I think I fit in your minority, but I do love elements of jazz, minus the dissonance, married with other types of music.

This is one of my favorite bands and they have a lot of jazz in what they play, but they're melodic and don't have that dissonance you don't like.

Lefty chev, that's fine, it has recurring satisfying base lines,melody and harmony !! I like "you look like rain" best out of the two..... The sax in that reminded me of Angelo Badalamenti who wrote the music for Twin Peaks and Julie Cruise,

Which has made me think of David lynches "Industrial symphony no.1" ( Dream of the broken hearted) This isnt an example of Badalamentis sax sounds that I meant, but nevertheless.

As an aside, If I had a "Julie Cruise" in the boot of MY car, I would give her biscuits and some soda and offer her some blankets, and ask her if she would say she hadn't a clue how she got there if my misses was to ask.

Welcome to the minority of 9 lol. (its a non elitist movement)




enjoy.....

Just to clarify, select "Rostosky" click "view my profile"
then click "ignore this user"
Then hope you never need any help that "rostosky" might be able to give, say for example being the one underneath a piano that is being moved downstairs. Or giving your vehicle a jump start should you ever flatten your battery in winter.
Or sharing some very nice home baked biscuits my granma bakes.

Don;t worry Rostosky, I too don't like "Jazz", in the same sense that you don't.
The problem is Jazz is a VERY wide-encompassing term.
I certainly like some of the old standards (eg. Misty, That's Life, Autumn Leaves, etc.) but to me that's not the "jazz" that we're talking about here. At least not the free-form exploratory (masturbatory to me) style that you are referring to. Bores and irritates me to no end.
But that's just a personal thing and I certainly don't let it bother me, why should I?
Just like I like some classical but a lot of it is boring as well.
Some Bach I like (and play) but a lot of that seems pointless to me also.
But I never consider any of these preferences as anything other than a personal preference and certainly never judge anybody else by their preferences either.
I enjoy being able to appreciate a wide style of pieces, as well as play a wide style. The fact that I don't completely appreciate everything in one style has never entered my mind really and certainly is nothing for me to even think twice about.
Heck I have even begun to take "jazz" lessons recently but that is more to learn to play and improvise working with chord structures (and cheat sheets) since I can already read fairly well. But I definitely limit myself to working on pieces in the style that I like and completely avoid those that do absolutely nothing for me (except irritate me).

Ah Sparky, you actually went "full frontal" so to speak by using the one word that has always been in my head to describe this, but that I avoided. lol.
At least with real masturbation,you have interesting "themes"
A good "build up"
And (usually) a satisfying "resolution"
Also, if your doing it right, it shouldn't be hurting anyone elses ears.

swiftly moving back to my failure to understand why I hate "those" types of jazz previously mentioned..
I got to wondering, has anyone ever improvised themselves to death or serious illness? I did a search on Google for "jazz musician fatally over-improvises" but didnt turn up anything.

I then wondered if a jazz musician had ever over improvised to the point where he ( or she, but its usually a he)had been rejected by his community?

so did another search; "jazz musician achieves 1000 metre social exclusion zone around his own person"

again Google failed me.

I then re-thought what Sparky had said, and wondered "is there such a thing as wanky - jazz?"

Googling in a bored sort of non expectant way could not have prepared me for the surprise and shock that followed.

Yes there is such a thing.. I dont know what it is, and I am not going to look, to be totally honest I am only really surprised that someone is finally admitting to calling it that.

Then I found that there is a help and support group for folk that say they hate jazz, with true personal stories, where one can get advice and chat, and share experiences in a caring loving safe enviroment.

Whilst it's not for me, as my life has not be as seriously affected by this genre as these poor souls lives have, I do feel justified in aquiring the 22 members numbers and accepting them into the movement on an honoury basis.

so thats 9 from here, + 22 honoury members from here;

http://www.experienceproject.com/groups/Hate-Jazz/17945

making a grand total of 31 to date.
I must admit great surprise and a sense of awe at the sheer number of brave souls that have come forward so far,knowing the risk of ridicule to be high, accepting the strong likelyhood of being labelled intellectually bankrupt cannot have been easy. Standing up alone in a desert of scorching sand and having the nerve to ask for a glass of water takes some doing.
In these hard times of melodic revival being in it's infancy, I take great comfort in the 31.

It can be okay. Some of it at least. A lot of people equate jazz with bebop, which I do despise. It sounds like someone had a mouthful of 32nd notes and sneezed into a trumpet. I feel like I'm being attacked by a swarm of flies when I listen to bebop. I prefer the kind of music where you can tell if there's wrong notes.

Of things people love to hate, Jazz seems to be sorted out for special attention. I really dont mind, as long as a bit of humor is attached.

32 and rising,soon no one will be able to slight us because its not politically correct to slight minorities.

I totally apologise if I gave the impression that Jazz is the only thing I dont like.
And to emphasise this particular point and address the issue immediately, here is a list of things that I also dont like, in order of importance.

My list of things I also dont like by Rostosky.
(1.) More jazz.
(2.) Accidently getting entangled under a 48 ton vehicle and being dragged down the highway in my underpants.
(3.) "Some" modern Jazz.
(4.) My own Mums shepherd pie (regardless of knowing the recipe)
(5) The thought of Zombies rising from the village graveyard, before I can get in touch with Milla Jovovich.
(6.)"some more" modern jazz.
(7.) Being ejected from under the 48 ton truck in my now torn underpants outside the local school just as the dinnertime bell is ringing.
(8.) Peas and other unnecesary greens that take space up on a dinner plate where good stuff like meat and pastries should go.
(9)Mormons calling at my front door; I cannot tell the difference (just from looking behind the curtains) between mormons and FBI.
(10)Cleo lane singing songs from all her albums which are all called "jazz essentials for the uninitiated"

I saw an episode of Sex in the City recently and this topic is what Sarah Jessi#a P#arker says. She says, "I hate jazz", and maybe you saw the episode. I won't spoil it in case you haven't seen it. But when I saw this topic I thought maybe that inspired it or else you need to read the episode online somewhere. ha.

LindaR hya , no not at all, it comes from my own brain, We do get Sex I T City here in the UK but my misses never has it on the telly, because it's about shoes and stuff.
My misses does have shoes of course, but only ones she needs, she doesn't have for example a wardrobe that only has shoes in it.
I don't like Sarahs chin. I know this is not an acceptable way to judge folk in general and I dont usually.
If I combine the thought of Sarahs chin with the expense of all the shoes in a walk in wardrobe,I lose the ability to function sexually.

I am however very glad to hear that Miss Parker does not like Jazz, I am sure she has her reasons even if they differ from mine, for example, she may not like jazz purely based on the cost of the musicians shoes or where they purchase them from,that's not a criteria that I have adopted.

So now we are a minority of 33 with an all inclusive expensive to maintain girl in our midst vis a vie Miss P.

I hasten to add, she will not get any special preferential treatment from this movement,but is welcome nevertheless.

As an aside,(according to folk who know)the girls from sex in the city always seem to have sex in the SAME city. I dont know if this is some sort of "repressed" trait or what. I feel it would be far more interesting if they had sex in lots of different cities,as variety is the spice of life and all that.

For obvious reasons I would not advocate New Orleans.

I once watched a whole episode of this soap,and I had the distinct notion that Miss P's head was actually too large for her body, like if you drew what you saw acurately an art teacher would say "dont be stupid, thats anatomically incorrect"

The upside to that would be that the art teacher would then go on to explain how usually in modern humanoids,the head is about 1/7 the size of the overall body.

That does not include high heels.

If a child drew a picture of Miss P accurately, I believe the childs mother would say "thats lovely dear,I will put it up on the fridge, now go and play nicely while mummy has her jazz time."

The downside would be the whole family may develop an eating disorder, as everytime they went into the fridge, they would subconciously associate food with developing an abnormal physique.

Saying that I would rather have an eating disorder than say, a disorder with my ears where every genre of music sounded like improvised jazz, that would be truly awfull.
I hope miss P's claims to not like jazz are genuine, and not just some girl excuse to go buy more shoes.

LindaR you didnt explain why Miss P doesn't like jazz..
If I "get caught" on the internet looking up "Sex in the city"
My misses will think I (a.) dont like her shoes anymore,or (b.)
think I am looking at other women.
Or (c.) may be developing an eating disorder.
