    Yes, bluesy/surf rock/jazzy piece... very nice. So far the most similar to Twin Peaks music. Great atmosphere.

    No, no. Baroque fulfils that criteria. It’s the sort of music you want to hear in a silent film!

    For someone that really hates jazz you must spend a lot of time hearing it, why not listen to jazz instead or to make it easier for your self just leave it alone and stick to what you do like

    Well, I have time for both - listening to jazz when I'm interested to find something that's worth listening to and listening to music that I do like.

    Check out Chick Corea. Hats off to a late scientologist but I find it pointless

    The concept of "hating jazz" is cracking me up.

    My gawd, there are so MANY different, very different, types of jazz.

    Myself, I'm not a fan of noodley jazz, ambient jazz, new age jazz. I can take or leave cool and bebop.

    But I love Dixieland, Big Band, Swing, Jazz/rock fusion, N'Orleans, Latin Jazz, bossa nova, and ragtime.

    It would appear that the type of improvisation found in jazz has been practised by the great composers like Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, etc, from the beginning. Obviously one doesn't have to like all jazz and I feel it is best heard live but hearing a great musician like Earl Hines is a wonder.
