that's like saying, I tried to like posters, but nah, shit hanging on the wall with a date and a venue on it, didn't work for me.
c'mon, in a field that spans fom Naked City, Ornette Coleman and Sun Ra on one side and maybe King Oliver and Fats Waller on the other side, there will be some "jazz" also for you 2 punkers (make that one punk and one prog-rocker).
I love Ornette Coleman. And Fats Waller. I am not a moran.

Case in point:
Ornette, Town Hall 1962: sheer brilliance.
