I'm not a fan of jazz but when you fuse it with other instruments and styles, you can come up with sth good.
I'm not a big fan of progressive rock, but I can listen to Pink Floyd for a while, but the likes of Yes, Y&T and a couple of others usually don't last longer than 5 minutes. As for Pink Floyd, I especially like the very early days, when Syd Barrett was still a member before he went nuts. But I have the same with Fleetwood Mac, who was at its best when Peter Greenbaum was still a member. As for Jazzrock or -funk, I cannot listen to that at all. Not because it's bad stuff, but just out of the sheer "coldness" of the music. I've seen a few Jazz- or Funk-rock bands live and these guys were standing there with an attitude of "oh wow, look at us how good we are and how difficult it is what we are doing - hey look, here's a D#6m9 chord, never heard that one before, didn't ya?"
and then -for me- the fun is basically over. In that case I'd rather went to see the Cramps, only the basic 12-bar songs, but with loads more fun, which reflects on the audience. I never went to a live progressive rockband, although I once had tickets for a Pink Floyd-show in Rotterdam, but I couldn't go because I was sick in bed with high fever. That was really too bad as I wanted to see them dearly.
M-G (and the tickets had cost me over 100 Guilders (45 Euros) each, which was very expensive at the time)
