This was me before I got into jazz. It seems that for a lot of people it takes a catalyst to break into the mode of appreciating The rhetoric of jazz music. I strongly recommend Bitch's Brew by Miles Davis. I'm not one to recommend fusion albums to jazz newbies but this album is really the exception. It's what converted me after a long spell of failed attempts to "get" jazz.
