Exclamation Jazz has one huge problem

What is jazz about? do you enjoy Jazz?

Well you dont, you dont enjoy jazz, you appreciate jazz mostly, yes sometimes it can be enjoyable when you listen to bill Evans or Dave Brubeck classically trained musicians or some remarkable and rare posts like "Kind of blue".
but jazz is mostly about appreciating good playing performance in a solo,

jazz is mostly for musicians because its really not about pleasure or even about about music as like classical music is about music, its about you, its about extending your limits of playing, expressing your nature through playing in a solo, sometimes it is even egoistic and a sort of competition between players who will out play who..in just a few chords of a particular piece that is bebop.
yes Jazz can sometimes be pleasurable for instance if maybe a sax plays slowly and gives you some mood or atmosphere by playing some random or not random long notes and it can be not bad sometimes really for that particular moment but i wonder who remembers it after its done besides remembering the person who played and remember oh yes hes a good player but what did he play? oh gosh i dont know..Jazz has one huge problem, its does not like silence!.

Yeah, it's threads like this that make me sad.

Just a little.

Like, this > < much. (Put your thumb and forefinger up to the screen and measure.)

Now keeping that same measurement, hold it up to your eye.

Now slowly move it away from your eye as far as you can.

Perception. The word of the day.

Everyday.

Apparently, neither do you. If you would quit talking and start listening, you might find that jazz, like any form of music, offers a world of pleasurable, dramatic and often breathtaking musical experiences. With respect, You need to get your sh*t straight, son.

Dude, you obviously haven't listened to much jazz.

Also, I love how he assumes everyone enjoys things the exact same way he does. Hilarious.

This is quite possibly the most ridiculous topic I've read so far.

i don't even see the point of this thread

if you actually play jazz and not just listen to it, you'll see a lot of work has gone into it

there is no "competition" between members, they have to be in tandem unless you're freejazzing, and even that have "rules"

jazz theory is very "mathematical" and are not random spurts of spontaniety

to achieve that level of getting everything right by the first take and "spontaneity", you need to have a good grasp of theory and your ears must be sound

i mean, Miles studied at Julliard - nobody really hears it, but he did
