Wondering if anyone here is into Jazz. I'm really digging some of Jim Hall & Bill Evan's albums right now, specifically Undercurrent and Intermodulation...

Aside from that, really into a lot of the other greats... Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, etc. etc.

For jazz fans: the Public Radio Jazz station in the NYC/NJ area streams online at WBGO. org-- and on Saturdays you can get Felix Hernandez's Rhythm Revue.

I like Sun Ra, Hiromi (and all her projects!), Coltrane, Davis, Dolphy, J.J. Johnson, Mantana Roberts etc. A lot of stuff...

My recent discovery is Okkyung Lee, Korean jazz cello player and Brötzmann's, Michiyo Yagi's, Nilssen-Love's "Head On" album... That's free jazz perfection.

I'm not really a fan of jazz, but I do like Kenny Burrell and more kinda blues orientated Jazz guitarists.

The late great John Hicks for me.

Adorno wrote:
“Jazz is the false liquidation of art — instead of utopia becoming reality it disappears from the picture.”

"The aim of jazz is the mechanical reproduction of a regressive moment, a castration symbolism. 'Give up your masculinity, let yourself be castrated,' the eunuchlike sound of the jazz band both mocks and proclaims, 'and you will be rewarded, accepted into a fraternity which shares the mystery of impotence with you, a mystery revealed at the moment of the initiation rite."


On a serious note, I don't really listen to much Jazz, but I did see The New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band live and it was one of the best concerts I've ever seen.
