Michael Brecker!

One of the biggest sax players ever (often said to be the greatest tenor player since Trane). One of the Brecker Brothers. An incredible musician. But if you didn't know that, I assume that you don't listen to jazz, funk or fusion much, so you probably don't care about that. You have probably still heard him as a studio musician though - for example with Dire Straits (or depending on your tastes Aerosmith, Michael Bolton, James Brown, Quincy Jones, Chaka Khan, John Lennon, Pat Metheny, Mark O'Connor, Frank Zappa…).

(But regardless, Miles is never a bad choice.)

You're right: my music listening days are long past. And I never was much interested on the people behind the music anyway.

Just had to note that listening to and knowing about/knowing names are a bit different Like tsa said, there can be many who listen to a lot of something, but don't necessarily become connoisseurs. Personally I think that I listen to a lot of jazz, but when it comes to names (something which I'm always horrible at), I notice that mainly I only know the classics (Davis, Coltrane, Monk..) - even if I do also listen to contemporary jazz too. Well, there is the occasional contemporary like David Murray (who I assume is also amongst the most-known names of living players) and Ambrose Akinmusire (relatively newcomer).

Or actually, now that I think about it, maybe it's more a matter of, umm, emphasis inside the genre (or rather time periods)? And also when a legendary player dies, they get much more legendary... Bah, I'm getting off the tracks now



Anyways, sorry to ramble, do proceed (I've no opinion on muppets, almost never seen any) Oh and thanks for the name, I'll have to check out his music

True, but when it comes to Brecker, it's not just any name. I maintain that you're unfamiliar with that entire area of jazz if you don't know him. It's like talking about baroque music but not recognising the names Bach and Vivaldi or Mozart and Beethoven in classical. (I don't place any value judgement in that - it's simply an observation.)

And to avoid derailing the thread completely: Kermit.

Morning or late night?

I don't agree although I understand what you mean. But you don't ever have to listen to classical music to know the names Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart, like you never have to listen to pop music to know the names Beatles, Michael Jackson and Madonna.

Paintings!

Intrigue or mystery?

Spoiler:
P.S. I'm new to this thread, so what's this whole trend of answering with "yes" and "no"?

Toaster. Now I'm craving toast again.

No, but when Trunkyo said he was craving toast, I had a feeling.

Mosquitoes, b/c they don't kill (usually).

Living in the city or the country?

There's a better chance that a porn flick will be at least decent while I haven't seen a good horror movie in a while

Beer or Wine? (strange just had a huge dejavu writing that)

Wine
I absolutely love wine, both red and white. Although red wine suits the time of the year better right now.
(Bummer I can't have any for the stupid antibiotics I'm currently having.)

Queen or Thin Lizzy?
