  1. chaotic
  2. rarely have a pattern
  3. too much spontaneity (no pattern)
  4. no harmony, everything is mixed together
  5. everything almost flat out equally, no break up break down
  6. cannot conjure intense/deep feeling, it's kinda of background music (because of 5.)
  7. chaotic

This honestly sounds like you heard 1 free jazz song and formed an opinion about a very nuanced genre.

You should change it to ‘I haven’t a clue about jazz’. Not a huge fan of jazz but this is nonsense.

Sounds like you’re not listening to the right jazz. Have you tried early Miles Davis? Bill Evans?

“rarely have a pattern”

don’t want to sound condescending but you don’t know how to listen to jazz. i took a jazz appreciation course in college that opened my mind and ears. you would benefit from same. or maybe just don’t listen to jazz. there’s plenty of other music out there.

hm this is a super ignorant and embarrassing post for op. Should have just said you don’t understand jazz patterns. While there is a lot of improvisation and movement, it is all formed around specific jazz chord progressions and the “chaotic” parts you refer to usually resolves with chord changes. Would highly recommend listening to John Coltrane, Errol Garner, etc. I think those in particular play their instruments very well and extremely soulfully.

Worked with a guy who was a jazz purist. Crap he'd play sounded like someone taped a goose to a drum kit, shoved a sax up its ass then kicked it down a long flight of stairs.

People always say "I like everything but country and rap." There are country and rap groups I like. Apparently for me it's the sound of a goose and a drum kit kicked down a long flight of stairs.

Just wait until someone plays you Still Eating Ginger Bread for Breakfast by SPUNK.

Maybe try something JAZZY that isn't JAZZ.

Like Fiona Apple has some jazz appeal depending on the song.

All of your points show an absolute ignorance of jazz. Jazz has been around for over 100 years and I can find artists in every decade that would disprove all of your points. From Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington to contemporary artists like Ezra Collective and Moses Boyd there are plenty of examples, of course there are also extreme examples that do meet your criteria but that is not all there is to jazz just liked Norwegian Black Metal isn't all there is to rock.
