What?

Jazz music takes so much talent man.

In the words of BB King:

“Jazz is the big brother of the blues. If a guy's playing blues like we play, he's in high school. When he starts playing jazz it's like going on to college, to a school of higher learning.”

Also, lots of people don't really care 'what is in' at the current moment. It's all about personal opinion there buddy.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

yes. people still listen (i believe that's what you meant) to jazz. just because it isn't on mainstream radio doesn't mean it's not being played.
#4
yes, everyone must listen to what is "in"
my gear: ibanez destroyer( with gibson 500t pickup), epiphone les paul plus,ampeg electric, marshall jcm2000 triple super lead half stack

My best friend has been playing jazz piano for the past 5 years, so yeah, I do.


Oh, and I think your idea of what is "in" is a little off.

I think this kid was trying to say 'listen to jazz'.

Jazz is a musicians music, so yeah, I listen to jazz.

It takes skill beyond normal musical comprehension to play jazz, and even more to compose it.

Me thinks this be a troll.

An idiot who, like many idiots, doesn't understand what it is that he listens to.

That's funny. I'm sure that's what many people would think of Giant Steps...

On the last day of school I was told the music I was listening to was "elevator music" twice by two different people at different parts of the day.

The first time I was listening to Phish (not really jazz but whatever) and the second time my friend and I were listening to some guitar jazz that idk what it was. And then a kid said the Umphrey's Mcgee sounded like arcade game music. I hate my peers.

If you open your mind you may actually find out that there's a ton of great music out there that isn't "in."

Some of it doesn't even have electric guitar (or any guitar for that matter)! WOW! Is it even possible?

This thread should just be closed, it's almost as bad as Kris and Neil's flaming and arguing of ColdGin in the John Mayer thread. So immature in here.

Why do I always get brought into that!? I only posted once!
