    Anyone besides me listen to it?

    If yes:

    What are you spinning lately?

    Would you have interest in us offering jazz on the site? CD? Vinyl?

    I find that, generally, my favorite jazz music resides on the ECM label. I have a pile of albums from Pat Metheny, Keith Jarrett, Terje Rypdal, Jan Garbarek, etc... In terms of more accessible stuff, I enjoy Weather Report, Passport and Jan Akkerman, and others although I tend go back to the ECM catalog when I really want to scratch that itch.

    I love ECM and its sister label JAPO.

    I like instrumental jazz (jazz fusion, jazz rock). I thoroughly enjoy Return To Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Passport, Weather Report, and Planeta Imaginario. I'm still learning what I like, having spent most of my years listening to metal.

    All wonderful bands but not jazz. Those are fusion/jazz rock. Related but different.

    Ken,

    Forgot to ask you earlier. What are your thoughts on Bill Bruford's Earthworks? I enjoyed some of their earlier stuff in the late 80's and early 90's but then lost touch with what they were up to. Thanks!

    Personally I’m not a fan. I saw Earthworks eons agol. I like Bill’s playing in a rock and jazz rock context. In a pure jazz style I didn’t connect with it.

    I would love for you to have jazz CDs for sale.

    ECM and JAPO have a lot of good stuff. I also like JMT, Black Saint and stuff like CMP Records. Sadly CMP is gone, but I still see some reissues of CMP stuff by Silva Screen. MPS was also a killer label with a lot of interesting artists.
