"Or jazz artists who never give a thought to timbre on electronic instruments."

Kind of true, but maybe becoming less so. Over the past week or so I've completely enchanted by Bojan Z's "Xenophonia." On it, he uses a piano, a regular Fender Rhodes and a messed-up one he calls a xenophone. It kind of sounds like a dirty guitar, in a good way.

"That you can actually depend on the liner notes to explain yourself? Yeah. Whereas in popular music you depend on photo shoots."

Very true (although the serious people use photo shoots and/or album covers too...). Certain jazz musicians use Armani suits, others camouflage pants...
