"She swears that she's artsy/ but you could distinguish Miles from Coltrane." -John Mayer, Comfortable. Can you distinguish Miles from Coltrane? (No Google!)
Who vs. Who? I don't recognize either name.
They're jazz artists. Miles (Davis) the trumpet player and Coltrane the sax player. :) they're both old artists, so it's definitely understandable if you don't recognize either or both (especially Coltrane)!
I know who Coltrane is, but wouldn't be able to identify his music. I'm not sure who "Miles" is referencing. Davis, maybe?
Actually, the only way I even know who Coltrane is is through a Deaf character in a movie. (Mr. Holland's Opus)
I do consider myself to be "artsy", though. I just tend towards the visual arts. I do painting, sculpture, fiber arts & similar and I like to study architecture & art history.
I just don't have an ear for music at all. Never really have, but the older I get the more pronounced my hearing problems…
get, so the less interested in music I become.
Miles (Davis) is a trumpet player and Coltrane is a sax player. I don't think not knowing that makes a person not artsy, it's just the lyric! Haha :)
No but such an amazing song (Comfortable, I mean)
Right?? One of my favorites!
Love them both, but I'm a miles fan.
Favorite song of ALL TIME is Miles Davis' Generique
This is one of my favorite John Mayer lyrics!
Of course! Two best jazz musicians in history. Dizzy is up there, too.
For sure! As a sax player, I'm always surprised by how many people don't know the difference! But jazz isn't for everyone, I guess.
For sure. Blue Train is my jam.
Dizzy is fantastic.
Who could love jazz?
Dizzy is fantastic.
Who couldn't love jazz?
Use the second post ????
Agreed! Jazz is awesome! I just found out the other day that my grandparents used to frequent this bar where once in a while Miles Davis would come play for fun. They saw him a couple times! That is CRAZY!!!
Oh. And the Evans/Hall duo.
Undercurrent is such a great album.
I'll listen to Jazz as background music gladly, but I would rather bite my fingers than go to a Jazz concert. Yeah. Weird.
