What Things Will You Not Like In Your Jazz?

180 posts in this topic

No to singers

No to trombone solos

No to organs

No to electric pianos

No to drum computers or electronic beats

Well, at least I can agree with you on #5! <_<

5 to me is pretty much absolute.

With 1 through 4 there are exceptions, but I'll be on my guard when buying records I'm unfamiliar with. With regards to 3 and 4 especially the 70s stuff. At least it's not for a lack of trying. :shrug[1]:

Jazz festival line-ups including Average White Band, Boz Scaggs, or Kenny G.

I agree no drum machines in jazz. But I LURVE them in Guinean Djeliya!

Drummers who sound like they never even heard of swing, let alone want to do it themselves.

Something I don't like in jazz (or popular music in general) is when a performer plays a few recognisable notes of a hit or a well known song and everyone bursts into applause. Who are they applauding? The performer for choosing that song; or themselves for recognising it within a few notes?

My, that was a grouchy one!

Actually, we're applauding the performer for finally playing something we like.
