I absolutely love Charlie Parker. Dizzy Gillepsie is a close second. The bebop genre of jazz is phenomenal.
I only recently start to listen to some of jazz music. At first it was a bit hard to digest jazz music, since most of em using wind instrument like sax and trumpet that produce kinda annoying buzzing sound.
Although i always think Oboe and Clarinet (maybe flute) produce the greatest sound for wind instruments. Those buzzing sound kinda grow in me, and the more i listen to it, the more i could enjoy jazz.
