I don't get it...Exile on main Street-Blue
@jastralfu when I said “level playing field” I meant, unlike athletics where it’s a scientifically proven fact that males have a physical advantage over females, none such exists in art.  
I don't get it...Exile on main Street-Blue
@jastralfu Of course there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the (clearly different from a male’s) sound of a female voice. Of course everything you say is true, but none of it addresses what I said or what the actual issue is. I’ve never once heard s... 
I don't get it...Exile on main Street-Blue
“Full disclosure I love female vocalists…” How does such a sexist qualification necessitate a preface of “full disclosure…”? Full disclosure: I abhor sexism.   Do you refer to “male vocalist” as if it’s a “genre” or do you just call them “vocalist... 
Kind of Blue
@viridian Kind of Blue or “free jazz” is the cliche you’d be happy to never hear again?  
Kind of Blue
It seems like we’re simply incapable of considering that it is not the definition of the “genre” that is the problem, but the “genre”-mongering itself that is the problem. In lieu of talking about how to define a “genre” and then describing music... 
Are You a Swifty?
@larsman For one, I didn’t say anything about “political violence” either.   Again, I was merely using an analogy to challenge the notion, “if someone likes it, it’s good.”  
Kind of Blue
I love talking about and describing music.  I see the act of describing a “genre” (and the subsequent stringent segregation and put-everything-in-a-box attitude) as being useful only to a person for whom doing so helps them maximize their profits ...

@simao I said, “that dog won’t hunt,” not, “that dog don’t bite.”   I look forward to the edification and growth I may be so blessed to attain in a future meeting with the sage-like simao.    
Are You a Swifty?
@simao No, talk of "legitimate art" is not the conclusion one who actually read my words and understands words would reach.   Best of luck with that whole "words" thing and that whole "intellectual honesty" thing.   You're off to a good start wi... 
Noir album recommendations
In terms of "evokes a corrupt town where it’s always raining / paranoia" but doesn’t-sound-like-"general jazz"-but-more-in the-orchestral-realm type thing, I would recommend: Experiment in Terror (1962 score) - Henry Mancini Vertigo (1958 score)... 
Are You a Swifty?
@simao Allow me to once again issue semantic gymnastics and snobbishly parse out words: “…enforcing a completely arbitrary and arrogant gateway for what can be considered legitimate art…” Come again?   “gateway?” “enforcing” said gateway?  What is... 
Are You a Swifty?
@larsman I was making a point with an analogy. You said “if someone likes something, that means it’s good.”   I’m saying, “no it doesn’t.”    
Are You a Swifty?
@larsman  "Personally, I think if somebody likes it, it's good, even if it's just good for that one person. Can't negate somebody else's experience..." I appreciate what you're getting at, but do you really, I mean...really believe that? Cyber-... 
Are You a Swifty?
@simao I said the music was vapid. If you want to take that personally and take it as though I'm saying YOU are vapid, I have no control over that, that's on you. I watch "Farting Preacher" videos on YouTube very often.   Is that "shallow" enough... 
Jazz for aficionados
@curiousjim When I listen to Black Christ of the Andes by Mary Lou Williams, I feel like I’m in Heaven. The title track is one of the great pieces of music of the last 60 years to these ears.
