Thanks. I've posted here before. But only occasionally. I have fairly eclectic tastes in music with a strong preference for jazz. The recording artist with the most albums in my collection is Oscar Peterson. I used to be an OP groupie, traveling to where I could go conveniently to hear him play live. I have about 60 of his recordings and thousands of jazz recordings overall.
I have almost everything in the classical genre - not every recording, of course, but at least one of most of the compositions. Thousands of recordings in that collection as well.
Blues would be next for me. I have perhaps 700 blues recordings. I'm a big fan of Kevin Moore better known as Keb' Mo'. I have all of his recordings and most of BB King's work.
I like country music but only that performed by a few throwback artists like Alan Jackson and Vince Gill. I like very little of the current stuff.
Latin music would be next. I love salsa and other Afro-Cuban genres in almost every form. I was raised in Cuba.
Then pop music and world music
Finally, Rock. It the smallest part of my collection. While I used to perform rock music professionally, I never enjoyed it like I enjoyed playing jazz or blues. I think my favorite gig of all time was with a fairly well known Dixieland jazz group. I think some of the older rock groups like Steely Dan and Dire Straits were quite innovative and I like their music. The current crop of rock groups don't do much for me. I don't care for singers that scream. I'm a geezer. Take care.
