Well, at least that makes me useful I guess I'm just not clever enough to appreciate it, my bad.
It's not about being clever. It's about educating yourself by listening to new things. Jazz is often very soulful and beautiful, Freddy. It's not all honking and bleating.
Hiya Jim. Thing is, I'm a big fan of melody, and with Jazz, with my limited musical vocabluary, I just don't hear any (melody).
Well this has melody and it's jazz: Youtube Keith Jarret: 'My Song.' European influenced and melodic. It wont let me post the link. See if you can find something to hang on to in this lovely Keith Jarrett song. Then we'll move slowly to the outer limits of jazz weirdness!
