I was never a fan of Brubeck. I recognize some of his compositions and his saxophone player was quite good. I could never get into progressive jazz. Perhaps I have missed something since I respect Perry’s and wurdpurrson’s opinion. I am a Dixieland and classical jazz fan but, even more, I am a big band fan. One of our musical ensembles at church is a jazz band but they have more of a big band sound. I like Kenny Gee. Does that count for something? I have a haunting, what if, about topics I have not pursued; so many fields of knowledge, so little time. But every thing is copacetic.
It is dark at night, but the Sun will come up and then we can see.

Love big band music to dance to - can't beat it. There are many kinds of jazz, enough to satisfy even the most obstinate soul. I like any kind of good, real music, classical through jazz (they have a lot in common) and all kinds of other offshoots: folk to ethnic, jug bands to musical theatre. It's all good.
