I certainly do.

Some more edgy jazz tends to work for me live better than at home, 
although I've had occasions where I picked up disks at a show that I 
thought I might not enjoy at home and found myself pleasantly 

I rarely feel any incentive to hear non-improvised music live.

For recorded music, there is also the related issue of live vs. 
studio. Like most fans, GD's live material works better for me at 
home than GD's studio material. I sometimes have a similar reaction 
to studio jazz disks. Generally I like studio jazz disks better if 
they sound as if they were recorded live. (Longer pieces, fairly 
constant personnel over the course of the disk)
