I hate jazz too - I'm sure they make it up, as raucously as possible, as they go along!

These are all jazz or highly jazz-based artists. Don't be nasty to Jazz; it's great and is fundamental so much of the music we all hear every day.

I've had to endure jazz since I was in the womb, my grandfather was a professional jazz musician, he played with Carl Barriteau among others (here he is on the double bass)

and my father (his son) is jazz obsessed and plays jazz guitar, he won't listen to any other kind of music (apart from classical) and dismisses all other forms as utter nonsense.

I now have a deep seated hatred for the music, I was forced to listen to it ALL the time from the day I was born, and I can't tolerate it any more!!

I can just about cope with Ragtime or really old trad jazz but I would run screaming from the room whilst ramming knitting needles into my ears if I ever heard 'modern jazz' and scat would just push me right over the edge.

Not sure that that's entirely correct, looking down your list.
I dare say you're correct in most cases (because I've never heard of them) but I have my reservations about some of them; I'd never have thought of 'The Doors' as being jazz-based for example.

The only one on your list Ewanneil that I've got any time for is Dusty - not exactly jazz!
As for the rest, purgatorial.

The tracks: Riders on the Storm; Light My fire; The End were some of the ones I was thinking of.

That's what my wife thought when we first met and she saw my record collection. Smile

If we hadn't had Jazz we wouldn't have the large percentage of current music.

Maybe.

Personally, I can't think of a single piece of 'current music' that I'd miss.

I can honestly say that I couldn't tell you the name of a single track or so-called artist in today's charts
