Oh boy, here we are again... classical v jazz - the battle lines have been drawn and away we go... So here's my take on all of this... If you can listen to Bill Evans play My Foolish Heart and not be moved, or at least affected - you are probably deaf and missing something truly beautiful. Likewise, every time I hear Mozart's 40th Symphony I'm awestruck - same with Stravinsky’s Firebird or Beethoven's Pathetique - and the list goes on. All of this music makes the world a far better place. On the other hand, I can also say beyond a doubt, there are types of music I deplore - e.g. Dixieland jazz makes me want to cover my ears and run. It's just not for me. So I say, to each their own.

Jazz is a fun way to communicate with others in the universal language of music.

I don't like modern jazz... it makes me sick D:
the other day I was in a shop when for no reason I stared feeling weird, i wa snervous, anxious, my chest stated to hurt... it was really weird, and then I noticed A band was playing jazz just outside of it. I walked for more then 15m to my car and was very nervous all the time...
jazz and new age music are really not for me.

So it's not just me! I've had that reaction to some things like Donna Lee. Very disorienting, like riding backwards in a bus. Not all jazz, though.

What happened to the OP? Maybe he converted and now loves jazz and is too embarrassed to admit it!

I've never heard jazz making someone physically sick! That's pretty funny (ok maybe not).

There was that experiment where retail stores would play classical music out in the front to prevent teens from loitering and causing trouble. Apparently most teens hate classical.

Jazz encompasses such a wide variety that even fans probably don't like certain styles of jazz. I don't like the old era stuff, like Dixieland or Boogie Woogie, or anything with Wynton Marsalis. Nor do I like "smooth" jazz, the watered down stuff you hear at the dentist. Or most free or avant-garde jazz, like Cecil Taylor.

But there's enough jazz that I do like to keep me satisfied.
