Who would want to read Allen Ginsberg or Jack Kerouac?
Good point, although I enjoy the way they write. Ginsberg certainly has nothing more to offer than absurd poems to laugh about. But I like Jack Kerouac because his novel, On the road, deals with something our society would not do anymore. Leave everything, get on a trip without directions and write a book in prose afterwards not knowning at all how it will be received. People prefer to stick to their daily job knowning it will increase their social status and add money in their pockets.
I know Born For Banning is about to call me a hippie right here but I am not. If there's one thing I don't like about On the road is how the character doesn't give a fuck about 75% of the things he does. I'd go on such trip. But I wouldn't do as much fucking around. The sociological aspect of the book is what I enjoyed the most. As for its closing statement, one of the many good quotes from the book:
"Bitterness, recriminations, advice, morality, sadness; everything was behind him, and ahead of him was the ragged and ecstatic joy of pure being."
An opinion as an idea presented without evidence, as of yet you have not provided any evidence as to jazz being unstructured and purely a spontaneous thing. To be honest your description of jazz sounds a lot more like a description of a Jimi Hendrix styled rock band.
Edrihan presented an argument by giving examples of jazz composers who wrote structured music, and even an example of a style of jazz that is mostly structured.
If I talked about Jazz being spontaneous, it was from MY point of view. I enjoy jazz but I am NOT a jazz musician. I agree that classical and metal music have much more intellectual content. Jazz mainly is sensual beauty.
