Jazz. I have tried, I am trying, but, meh, I don't seem to get it. My wife's father played Clarinet in his spare time, and was held in pretty high regard in the regional Jazz scene. As such, my wife has listened to all types of Jazz from a young age... and loves it. (She is amazing well schooled in all forms of music from Classical through to most modern bands). I like the 'big band/swing'type of Jazz like Benny Goodman, and often listen to it. But the deeper I get into more freeform Jazz, the less I seem to 'get it'. I get that the musicians are highly talented and gifted - almost psychic in how they play together... but I don't understand it musically. Today I spent hours listening to Miles Davis, Coltrane, Chet Baker, Thelonious Monk - and I really appreciate it as music, but it doesn't seem to move me. I then moved on to people like Don Cherry, who my wife loves (as an aside, his son Eagle-Eye Cherry is awesome!), and I seriously don't get it at all. Is it just me? an acquired taste? or something you can never pick up if you don't listen to it at a young age? Help!
