I don’t know what it is about jazz that I like so much. Maybe it’s the snob appeal, but if that were the case, I wouldn’t enjoy listening to it when I was alone, and I do. Snob appeal would imply that I’d only enjoy it when I could be a snob about it, i.e. around non-jazz fans. It would be like “ha ha, I listen to better music than you do!” There was a time when, if I wasn’t listening to the kind of music I liked, I couldn’t have a good time. I realized that was stupid. Now, if I’m not listening to music I like, I tune it out and use it as background noise, kind of like the stuff I listen to at night.
Speaking of noise (and I’m not talking about traffic accidents or cats fighting), did you know there were “colors” of noise? You’ve heard of white noise, I’m sure, but there’s pink noise, brown noise, blue noise, gray noise, violet noise, even green noise. Each is associated with a specific mathematical function, and beyond that I don’t know how it works. I should pick up a book on acoustics, or whatever it is that would explain how it works.
All right, I’ve been meandering long enough…
