Is Picasso's artwork any less art just because it differs in form and message from that of Leonardo's or Rubens'?
Everyone is talking.
They're all just using collections of words.
Some words mean something that is more true than other collections of words.
This is why we might say Hemingway is a better writer than Roth.
But it depends on who you are, how intelligent you are, how experienced you are, and how honest you are.
Jazz is randomness that pretends to be profound. The sooner you outgrow it, the sooner you are on a journey toward art.
What makes good art powerful is its poetic narrative, its sense of having something to say, its distance from the human karmic drama. Jazz, rock, blues, hip-hop, and punk are heading away from that direction.
Just like we hate moron metal here, we hate slovenly art forms that pretend to be profound, but are really designed to amuse the inexperienced.
I too once liked jazz. Then I learned to think like a philosopher. Now to me it is litter by the side of the freeway, a rusted car in the parking lot of an abandoned factory, the speech of a politician in wartime.
Save these words, because in five years they'll mean more than they do now. Unless you're a moron. In which case, die.
