All the time! My musical taste was somewhat limited when I was younger, so lots of "new" stuff to discover.

I made a post a few days ago where I discovered Alvin Lee 60 years late.
I very rarely listen to modern music anyway...it pains me.

Yep, traced back from the Stones and Cream to Robert Johnson and '20s and '30s blues. Also Gypsy jazz, and from there I got interested in Gypsy string combos. A couple violins, a viola, a string bass and a hammered dulcimer. Those Gypsy bands play with such feeling and finesse!

I really like Boulou Ferre'. His use of dynamics has a dramatic flair.



The Rosenberg family are fun to listen to.



And for a more modern Gypsy Jazz flavor. Antoine Boyer is an interesting player.

Im the absolute oppisite of the OP, I grew up playing guitar and found the saxophone. I always liked bebop, and cool jazz, but in the last few years I have really been into trad jazz, swing, and especially the music of Duke Ellington. I have also really enjoyed the american songbook, with songwriters like Hoagie Carmichael, and Gershwin. Its a long way from the Led Zeppelin of my youth.

Yes, for sure. As I advance in age, I go further back in time musically. I’ve always listened to stuff I didn’t know, but it’s hard to do that and stay current too - there’s only so much time. When I was young, newer was always better, but no longer.
My latest craze is jump blues - Big Joe Turner and things like that. Before my time, but that stuff is great.
