RE: Was the '80's really that bad for Jazz?

+1, jazz had really taken up the "smooth" format and sucked big. It was about that time I got introduced (from CC and WR) to "classic" jazz, like BN and Bird, along with Miles, Trane, early Evans, etc. No comparison there. But, there was some good stuff out there that was trad (VSOP), fusion (DiMeola & Scofield, Metheny, Jaco) that is pretty good stuff. Also, got turned on about that time, maybe later, to Courtney Pine, who's stuff is amazing (to the eyes of creation, destiny's song, others well although he also had a "smooth' period), Blanchard & Harrison (Black Pearls, amazing album), Branford Marsalis... These may be more '90s stuff, but is good. Still, in the '50s and '60s, you almost couldn't buy a bad jazz album, that totally switched in the '80s... Kenny G, Yawnni, and John Tesh, I would rather listen to country...
