I used to like jazz as a youngster. As I age, I like it less and less. There is one album that will always be one of my favorites, however, and that is Giant Steps by Coltrane. It is brilliant.

Never knew I liked ANY jazz, thanks for pointing this out I've been enjoying it!

Interesting. What have you grown to dislike about it?

Here's the simplest way I can put it. I would listen to these albums (I probably had more than a hundred, maybe two, at one point), and think that there was some mystic quality, that I would figure out the secret someday, but I didn't quite get it yet. Then I got to a point where I kinda realized that there wasn't much to get. Most jazz just feels empty to me.

For some reason, I got into ragas with absolutely no issue but find jazz to be grating.
