I like blues, jazz not so much.
If you like Blues then there is quite a lot of Jazz you may well like , it's a broad genre with myriad segments/definitions within the genre , many of which are rather Blues-based.
It's a given that certain styles of Bop or Free Jazz aren't to most folks taste , even to a fiend such as myself Sun Ra , Albert Ayler or even at times Charlie Parker sounds like someone trying to strangle their horn.
Hank Crawford , Nat and Cannonball Adderley , Wes Montgomery , Kenny Burrell and myriad others are entirely a different cup of tea.
And then there are the artists who crossed back and forth and defy convenient labeling , was Billy Holiday Jazz or Blues? Or was she something all to herself , Grover Washington is sometimes one , sometimes the other , sometimes both , Big Joe Turner similar.
Was Gil Scott Heron either , or just a brilliant spoken word poet and political activist with some of the most relevant sociopolitical commentary ever to run down the pike?
And then there are of course the genres that some folks toss under the convenient "jazz" label , Zydeco is *not* jazz , though quite a few attempt to label it as such.
My musical taste is all over the map , from certain classical to Irish Punk and much that's in between , new or old , I don't much care as long as it's pleasing.
That said there are of course artists I don't much care for , many of them modern , as an example my personal opinion of Brittany Spears runs to " Spear Brittany before she attempts to sing again."...........
