Re: Pretentious music??
The one thing that I have learned about jazz Stan is this. People either like it or they don't.
There is no such thing as a casual jazz listener.
I made the mistake of trying to share my love of jazz with both friends and musicians that don't get it.
They try to listen, then the get that glazed over look in their eye. Kind of like a husband on a shopping trip with his wife LOL! He his totally lost! A fish out of water!
I kind of like old drums:)
