You have the right to your taste in music.  It is personal, after all.  But trashing what has been considered a golden age in music is less about the music than it is about you.

You're right.  It says I'm not a delusional Boomer who likes the smell of his own farts.  As for Musical Golden Ages, the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s are far superior to anything produced in the last 2T.

My father (born 1914) was a jazz musician, so you don't have to sell me on that.  But let's be honest, musicians like James Johnson or Bix Beiderbecke are rare in every era.  Fats Wallers don't grow in trees either.  But musical taste doesn't define musical talent.  The Beatles were great for being a really great band: tight, innovative with great internal cross pollination.  

BTW, the greatest year in jazz is considered to be 1959, when Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, John Colerain, Dave Brubeck, Bill Evans, Charlie Mingus and Duke Ellington (among others) released great albums that defined new directions in jazz -- most unique to themselves at the time, but copied by many later.
Intelligence is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom, but they all play well together.
