I never quite understand so many peoples hatred of Jazz? Yeah it has it's share of pretentious crap but what musical genre doesn't? Jazz is inherently American and if you didn't grow up listening to it I think people just hear it as musical twiddling. The masses that listen to radio fodder have a a real struggle getting their heads around anything thats not 4/4 time. It's a shame really, I've tried on many occasions to get friends to sit back and just listen to stuff like Pharoah Sanders - Karma. It's f'ing beautiful, there's definitely some noisy free form bits I can see people not digging, but they weren't having it in any way. To each their own I know, I just hate it when some one says they dont like something purely out of never even trying. On that note..........
