The less annoying things in jazz music
Why not give this discussion a more positive twist?
The less annoying thing in jazz for me is the diversity of the music itself, and the possibility to develop one's tastes in so many directions inside a musical genre. Or, as Boris Vian put it: "Remember that your ultimate right as a listener is to say: "This is what I like et je vous emmerde"".

There's more than a lifetime's listening in jazz for anyone, even the most diehard diehard couldn't hear all of it or even close.

The riff-filled land
Man, it annoys me to walk into a jazz club and not being able to smoke.
Wait, wrong thread...

Each Day Is A Gift.
Having the good fortune to not only hear but meet and get to know some superb jazz musicians, then learn how truly humble most of them are.

For many a jazz fan the music is a continuous inspiration. The gift that keeps on giving.
It's like a drug with no side effects.
I'd have to question anyone who tires of the music for not "advancing" fast enough. Sorta like Gary said, there will never be enough time to absorb all of the styles or artists past or present.

No matter what kind of day I've had or am having.
No matter what happens, jazz can make it even better.
I love playing the music REAL LOUD at home and having my wife run in the room and yell about how great it is....

Some of the other Eric Alexander covers, JamesH (other than your avatar, I mean)...now those are some of the least annoying things in jazz!

The entire catalogue is filled with semi-clad or nude women on the covers.
This past Sunday I had the pianist John DiMartino on the show with his 4th Venus CD and nude woman on the cover.

That it would take more than a lifetime to hear it all wasn't a statement limited by me to the past. Where does the past begin? I became a dedicated jazz guy age 15. There's been 38 more years of jazz played and recorded, since, and counting ... No one could listen to all that's been made since. No one could listen to all of it that's being made in the present. And so on ...

Somewhere along the journey of my current radio 'daze', someone pointed out to me that per average year there about 3,000 releases that come under the jazz unbrella.

There seems to be more collaboration and less ego trips. Leave the prima donnas to rock.
