1. I voted yes
But I really don't care for newer "smooth jazz", unless you want to give me a handful of percodan to go with it.

5. Yes - a little of everything
From Glenn Miller to Dave Brubeck, from Allan Holdsworth to John Zorn.

6. Yes, very much so.
In high school, me and three friends started the band Us. It quickly folded. :(

16. Oh, Who Isn't?
You ought to know by now that all musicians have the RA in them. Some just hide it better than others. Take for instance, me. I don't hide it well at all. Apparently, neither does Al.

11. Absolutely Yes, Except If It's Called Smooth Jazz
That's just pop music with good players. It tends to be kind of boring and rhythmically uninteresting.

I'm a bop, hard bop, postbop guy, but i like most of the subgenres.
