De Gustibus: I don't like most jazz (Brubeck is a huge exception, and he
was classically trained and did some classical composing) and I don't like
the sound of the sax unless it's very very mellow. I don't even like most
Mozart or Beethoven or Bach, but what I do like I just love to death. I
was born picky. Being black has nothing to do with it, I assure you.
There's just not a lot of black classical composers. Big band jazz is OK -

my 1200 collection. Bluegrass is good. Try the AUstin Lounge Lizards for

I like no pop music aside from a few in the 70s. I really wish I did like
