Had a search and could only find one reference to Jazz and that was a derogatory remark by @ninjaborrower.

why not try New Orleans Suite by Duke Ellington, one of my all time favourite albums.

 

First track but you need to listen to whole album.

Diana Krall is a superb jazz musician. Yeh, Costello definitely bagged a good one. Not sure how their marital status or relationship is doing these days.

I like loads of Diana’s live performances. Superb!

Too many notes for you eh?

I find the usual stuff rather good, but I do draw the line at chainsaws, and fridge noises.

@Theboltonfury is a jazzer if he is still around.

I am not a fan because at root it is simply too "difficult" for me like Stockhausen with his atonality.

This is music for musicians and I am a mere listener.

It's not that there's too many notes.

It's the propensity for the number of beats in a bar to suddenly go from Imperial to Metric...

My old man was a jazz fan, he used to play jazz in 1960s Soho, I used to try and take him to jazz gigs when he would visit me in London. I remember standing outside the Vortex club in Stoke Newington about to pay to go in when he stopped me and said, "sounds like the piano is falling down the stairs, lets go somewhere else ".

It’s way, way, better live. I didn’t get it at all until my dad took me to see a no-name bunch of session players do a gig in a dingy basement in Leeds when I was about 15. Listening to an improvised tenor sax solo that went for at least 10 minutes and built to an amazing peak sitting ten feet from the band was an almost religious experience it was that good.
