Jazz helps me find my inner urban child, but only when played through high end equipment.
I love both Davis and Monk.
I do have one friend who I know dislikes the genre, but he isn't annoying about it or anything.

I actually need to pick up some jazz, myself.
I've never been into too many jazz horn musicians, but there are some jazz guitar pieces that I adore.
I love all forms of jazz.

I hear this more then I would like, especially people who prefer to think that they are rockers and guitar god worshippers. When I bring up Brad Paisley, they usually scoff and disregard the fact that he can outplay most of the most lauded rock guitarists out there.
As for rap, I still have a hard time not using the blanket statement "anything but rap", but I have found that I enjoy Run-DMC. I'm also getting into blues, so I may end up just throwing my hands in the air and saying "I like anything with an electric guitar and a singer who doesn't scream incoherently at me".
I perfer Brazilian Jazz. I like anything but post 1994 country and post 2004 rap and um crap I'm to drunk to spell melodic.............
