I got into it through my grandpa (mom's side). Didn't get to know him super well when he was alive (we lived a good distance away, and as a night-shift prison guard, he was usually either working or sleeping when we came down to visit), but after I grew up and was able to visit on my own, I got to learn a lot about the man. He was playing "Flamenco Sketches" (by Miles Davis) in the car one day, and I said, "I didn't know you were a jazz guy, Grandpa," and he laughed and said yes, he was. Got me hooked on it.

He passed away not too long after, but I always think of Grandpa when I hear Miles Davis.

I also got into lo-fi hip-hop, courtesy of Sonic-ock and Samurai Champloo. Nujabes was a frickin' genius.

Oh man, such a great story. I'm sorry to hear that, but dude, Jazz is amazing, it's always there to set the mood for most things both upbeat and innocent to somber and depressing. Thanks for sharing!

I don't really listen to it a whole lot, but I definitely like playing Jazz on guitar. It's a real treat to realize you can play all the weird chords in a song.

Can't talk about jazz on a comic forum without mentioning the masterpiece that is the Cowboy Bebop OST.

I used to have a radio show that focused on jazz & swing music from the 20s-40s. I'm not too big on more recent stuff but I appreciate the genre in general.
