        I’ve no wish to.

        I respect modern jazz for its technique even though it’s not my preferred listening. There is no skill here that takes time and effort to master.

      • Scientists, especially physicists and astronomers, talk of outreach, i.e. explaining what they do to non-experts. Is there some equivalent explanation for Pollock?
