My taste hasn't changed much since I was a teenager, which was more than a couple of years ago. Blues,jazz of all types, funk, a little Motown, rock that's influenced by blues. Especially jazz. These days I like stuff that makes you want to move! I've always liked punchy funked up bass. The greats as far as I'm concerned: Monk, Miles, and the Bird of course. Jimmy Smith, Stevie Ray Vaughn, John Schofield, Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clarke, John Mayall, Jeff Beck, and B.B.King. I also like other genres including classical (especially the Russians), electronic including techno and some early experimental stuff like John Cage, Van Morrison, Sade (oooh!). Stones, especially early Stones. The Beatles changed everything for rock. Johnny Cash does incredible ballads when you're in the mood. Well, I guess I could go on quite a while so the bottom line is I like music, just some a little more than others.
