Jazz is the last refuge of the untalented. Jazz musicians enjoy themselves more than anyone listening to them does - Tony Wilson (24Hour Party People)

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Its a shame there will be little evidence of it in Cork this weekend as most that is passed for Jazz is generally some lame cover band playing Mustang Sally and other dross.

I'm rather indifferent to jazz, some good some bad and all that. However it never ceases to amaze me how everyone becomes a jazz expert this time of year.
You usually get some smug plonker telling you how he's been a lifelong fan of some obscure pianist who is considered a genius because his set includes a radiohead cover. Strange that when jazz gigs are on the rest of the year without a huge sponsor promoting them they are usually attended by about 10 people. And that's including the 8 piece band.

No better man to turn to than Dereck on the subject of jazz.

Thats like summing up every sport as 'you throw/kick a ball around a field for 70/80/90 minutes'.

Love the weekend meself. Great buzz around. Fuck the begrudgers.

If people of Cork want to avoid the Jazz, then come to Galway and experience a fantastic city for a long weekend.

That the best analogy you can dream up? Pathetic. 'Great buzz around' You sound like that Jazz plonker they parodied on The Fast Show...Wouldn't you be a 'blast' to be stuck in an elevator with...

Maybe endure ten minutes of Miles Davis...then I'm off, not quite a grim as Jedward...but...
