When I was first getting into jazz and classical I disliked the recordings where I could hear the pianist's vocalizations, because I didn't understand what those sounds were and mistook them for random noises that occurred in the studio and could be heard on the recording. I kept wondering "who the heck let's people talk in the background when music is being recorded?". Then when I finally realized at some point I was in fact hearing the pianist him- or herself humming along to the tune, or moaning and grunting because they were so in the moment and were simply so excited about what they heard that they couldn't help themselves, my position took a complete turnaround and now I have no issue whatsoever hearing musicians' vocalizations on tape. On the contrary, I rather enjoy it and feel it adds to the performance. Once I realized those sounds weren't something that wasn't intended to be heard, all of my negative feelings disappeared in an instant.
