I've always hated jazz. Loathed it. But in the last year, it has snuck up on me. I can't stop listening to Miles Davis's Kind of Blue but am scared of his Bitches Brew. I really enjoy the melancholy and soft aspects of the former, but am certainly wanting to spend more time with the likes of the latter. What else should I listen to?

I love music. All kinds of music, from rock to disco to country to classical to jazz. I'm trying to build up my jazz collection and I've picked up some Miles Davis and John Coltrane. My question is this: I don't understand the love that many people have for electric Davis (I've listened to many of his electric works, but I'm specifically referring to A Tribute to Jack Johnson) and Coltrane's A Love Supreme. While the music (usually) isn't hard on the ears, I simply don't hear what people find so attractive about these two artists. Explain.
