Would you like to see more downtown or North County meetups?

North County, only because it's less of a drive and easier (read: less expensive) to park.

What is your least favorite type of Jazz

Most smooth Jazz. There's some crossover stuff, like Jesse Cook which is pretty good, but most of it sounds like mindless Muzac to me.

Do you like attending larger venues with well-known artists or smaller clubs with local talent, or both?

Of course, the best combo is a well-known artist in a smaller club, which is why Anthology is so cool (but not a great place for meetups). Small clubs with talented musicians are probably my favorite.

Who are your favorite Jazz artists?

Bop & Classic: Bird, Miles, Mingus, Coltrane, Sonny Stitt, Sonny Rollins, David Newman, Ron Carter. Newer guys like Joshua Redmond & Chris Potter. Fusion: John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola, Larry Coryell, Chick Corea.

What is your favorite type of Jazz?

Bop and then Fusion in that order. Latin and Swing then follow.

Introduction

I'm a former NYer, (Brooklyn, actually). I love Bebop/Cool/Fusion. Bird, Coltrane, Mingus, Monk... you get the idea. Newer guys like Chris Potter & Joshua Redman are musicians I'd like to see. I'm a Jazz 88 member, & XM RealJazz67 & jazzconclass.com.
