That does not make sense at all.
I love my brother a lot, but sometimes........
I probably should have mentioned this earlier so you knew where I was coming from, but I used to play piano and did a little jazz, but I was mostly into Blues and Rock and Roll piano.
Anyway, I do like jazz, but I don't really actively pursue it, I guess you could say. Like I don't really know any jazz artists, and I don't go around looking for jazz to add to my music collection, but I certainly can appreciate it, and if, say, I walked into a bar or something and it was playing, I'd probably sit down a listen.
I think I might be going to New Orleans in January for an AMS conference, and I'm pretty excited about getting the opportunity to go to a jazz or blues bar there (if anyone could recommend one, that'd be great).
Anyway since that New Orleans trip is a school related thing, I did stay on topic.
