It seems like a lot of people are here to open up their musical world to explore jazz, or maybe do not have many albums. Im curious to see how many people are knowledgeable about jazz and who are here to learn more.

I personally fall into the 200+ range. I will admit most of it is fusion, but I have a lot of essentials, and feel I am pretty knowledgeable about jazz (thanks to liner notes on many of the jazz albums I have, due to them being re-released; and other sources)

So how many do you have?

I don't own them personally, but my dad has well over 200 that I have access to. And that's just CDs LOL, he has 200+ vinyl as well!

A quick count gave me 60, and that's not including a lot of things I would consider jazz but are labeled differently in my iTunes.  It probably comes around 80

My parents don't listen to jazz, so any I have is my own

Counting everything which is already on the site and which will (hopefully) be here eventually, I just break the 200 mark.

Since i started collecting vinyls i've aquired a lot of fusion which at the moment puts at 10-20

I have at least 94 jazz albums on my computer (as classified by Windows Media Player), and add to that my vinyl and some other jazz/rock fusion albums on my computer and I'm in between 100 and 200.

I'd say it's about 70-80, and most of them are by Miles. Recently I've gotten more and more into jazz, but due to lack of money I've borrowed all the stuff I've listened to from the library.

Probably in between 20-50 but I haven't truly counted. Need more, nonetheless.

As much as I love jazz, my collection is quite poor, especially considering the "classics" I don't have. So, I'd say probably in the 15-30 range (of the more "straight" jazz cds). But if we are counting various types of fusion certainly more...probably between 50-100 (if not more).

But 'tis only a guess. My iTunes labelling system is very sparse and simple, thus I don't have an accurate count.

In the 200+ boat, a good portion of this falls within the more avant-garde/free variety (this was a entry point into the genre, it took me a lot longer to appreciate Bop and the ilk). Live with two jazz musicians currently studying at university (sax 'n' guitar), so together there's probably over a 1000 jazz discs lying (neatly organized on HD's) 'round the place.
