I like it all, from ABBA, yes ABBA, to Johnny Cash to Crosby Stills Nash & Young to Lorretta Lyn to Jethro Tull to Pink Floyd. Hell, I even listen to the Bee Gees, yes, I do. I guess it all depends on my mood. One type of music I dont really care for is Rap. But hey, what do I know?

Varies, just like on land. When I'm on a really long passage and can't stay awake, I listen to the Chemical Brothers. If I'm looking to relax, it's jazz, classical or solo piano (George Winston style). If I'm bored, I throw on some 80's to laugh it up a bit.

Bob Marley box set is nice when it's hot and lazy out.

PS: I couldn't vote... not enough choices! Only 2 genres??

The limitations of the poll do make it impossible to complete. While I do listen to an awful lot of country, blues, rock and some jazz, reggae and classical there are one or two other genres available to the music lover and also to those wot can stand abba and the bee gees without throwing up.

Much as I like Winston (his summer, winter, autumn series was an absolute gem) Keith Jarrett's Koln Concert still does it for me every time I play it.

I'm not even familiar with him. I'll have to check him out! If you want to check out some other decent solo piano music, check out a girl I used to date in Manhattan. Her name is Caren Levine. She does a lot of work with opera people and has played at Carnegie Hall. One of her albums is called "Flowers From a Secret Admirer"

PS: Don't forward this to the wife!! ha ha ha

Just as long as you don't tell my trouble and strife I'm checking out your ex girlfriend !!

Jarrett is probably the doyen of jazz pianists. At last count he has something like 50 albums on release both solo and with other players including Pat Metheny, Jan Gabareck, Gary Burton and his own trio with Gary Peacock and Jack de Johnette. His Koln concerts is sixty odd minutes of live improvisation. Must be 20 years old by now, I know I bought the LP (black shiny thing with a hole in the centre, remember them ?) in the seventies, but is still available. As a youngster Keith played with Miles Davis with Chick Corea, Art Blakely and Charles Lloyd before doing his own thing.

Could not really vote but...

Lot of different genera's of Jazz, Reggie, Jimmy Buffet, Lots of different styles of Rock, some classical, every now and then some Sinatra.. guess a pretty varied set of music. have about 400 CDs on board, 30 gigs on an IPOD [different than CDs], and Sirius satellite so variety is not the problem.
