TtK, it seems like you're intent on denigrating music that many of us care about deeply. Robert started a thread about new jazz. If you don't care for new jazz, that's fine. No one is going to argue that you SHOULD like it. On the other hand, you not-so-subtly remind us again and again that jazz is somehow "not relevant" culturally -- and the implication is that we SHOULD NOT like it.
O.K. We get it. Jazz today doesn't have the cultural sway that it once did. Big deal. I don't listen to music as a culture. I listen to it as an individual. And, as an individual, the music means a great deal to me. And, since this board is dedicated to jazz, not surprisingly, it means a lot to MANY of the readers here.
So what gives? What are you trying to prove?
