Or at least start one for me.
Due to family changes, I am losing 75% of previously jointly owned CD’s. That doesn’t bother me much, as I am not a huge fan of my wife’s musical tastes. I am left with a lot of classical stuff and the various albums that I bought because they stuck out from my vinyl collection or because they fitted in with particular memories of mine. Anyway, I tend to use music mainly for background purposes, and in looking through what I have left, I notice a total absence of jazz. The thing is, I actually like jazz, though I know next to nothing about it.
So, if I was to be buying jazz CDs over the next few months (especially once work starts), and was looking to end up with say 30 of them for starters, what would y’all recommend? The perfect thing would be a broad ranging exposure so I can be put in a position to pick for myself after that. Kind of a teach me to fish concept, really.
