You'll miss out on a lot of great Machito recordings, then.

Soprano saxophones (with rare exceptions)

Bechet & Lacy? But yeah, after Trane it seemed that every tenor player felt he HAD to take up soprano, but without developing an instrument-specific approach, IMO. I can do without Shepp & Pharoah on soprano, for instance.

I have no instrument I'd rule out, though harpsichord and celesta are hard sells. Can't stand the sound of Kellaway's harpsichord on Ben's See You at the Fair.

I wouldn't care if Frank Wess and James Moody had never played flute, but jazz would be a poorer place if Rahsaan, Dolphy, Sam Rivers and a few others never did. And Nicole Mitchell & James Newton.

NICOLE IS A LOVELY ADORABLE YOUNG LADY AND GREAT MUSICIAN, BUT A LITTLE BIT OF HER FLUTING GOES A LONG WAY WITH ME.

JAZZ WHISTLERS AND HARMONICERS I CAN DO WITH OUT.

NAT ADDERLY'S ELECTRONIC CORNET SOUNDED JUST AWFUL TO ME.

EDDIE HARRIS ELECTRIC SAX WASN'T GOOD TO MY EARS.

I can accept anything used in a creative way. Still waiting on a number of things. <_<

Not just there, but on the Grant Green & Elvin Jones Lighthouse albums as well.

Time/place/etc.

In most cases, strings and orchestras. They are nearly always arranged like Tchaikovsky when jazz is better arranged like Stravinsky or Bartok.

Yep.

Screaming thru your horn, pretending you're saying something meaningful & profound when all you're doing is... well, screaming thru your horn...

Oh yeah, and bass solos....

I can't think of a damned thing that I would rule out in any and all circumstances.

Diving off the speaker stacks.

Crowd-surfing an audience of four.

Did I hear you correctly...?

Heh heh.

I dare you to mention meandering 'creative' passages on 'little instruments'. I dare you.
