I know you're not a fan of black music in general

but for you to not be able to objectively rank a single American soul, blues or jazz artist as "4 star plus" is pretty ridiculous. Maybe you aren't capable of being even the slightest bit objective when ranking artists in terms of greatness or musical accomplishments. At any rate, I feel like if you invested a mere portion of the time you've spent on devouring classical music to actually checking out black music rather than just giving the most popular albums from each genre a cursory listen, you might be surprised by how much you actually seem to enjoy. You just have to get used to it and adjust your criterion a bit. This music often can't be judged with the same criteria as rock or classical. Anyway, it seemed like this was already starting to happen with Stevie Wonder, which means you're not completely hopeless. It'll probably never be among your *favorite* music but I think you'll gain more of an appreciation of it with time if you really give it a chance.
