I will listen to most stuff with the exception of rap and modern jazz. I like trad jazz in small quantity, but I honestly can't stand modern jazz. To me it's just a racket but, as has been said previously, each to their own.
We were in a pub some years ago, not realising it was jazz night. I thought the band was tuning up - badly, but when they stopped everybody started applauding. Now that could have been appreciation of the fact that they had stopped, but they did start up again. I simply couldn't make out any sort of tune in what they were playing. Fortunately there was another pub close by so we moved on!
