    you know it is a pretty insnane topic, I admit i dont undertstand most of it, these guys were never really on my radar. i did see branford quartet once a long time ago. i dinstincly recall him talking to a group of students before the show and he was saying how learning jazz cant be a learn-how-to-solo-in-30-days type thing. it seemed sensible. show didint wow me.

    i guess the vinyl quality wowed me it looked so shiny- like those 80s green label beach boys lps-- way better than the original 60s ones

    Proud to report i bought the blue triangle Eastworld cd, shipping out of UK. the lp sounds so amazing i can even begin to imagine how incredible the cd will be, which was released only 2 years after the lp *by far my favorite fusion album

    someone posted this on reddit- quote: He recently tanked the jazz program at Juliard and forced Ron Carter and Ray Drummond to quit after they both had been there for years. Within a short time of taking over he sent an email out telling everyone that bass players could no longer use amps in big band or combo, and within 24 hours both bass professors resigned. Fuck Wynton and his backward ideas on Music. “Wynton Marsalis is jazzy in the same sense that a sports car is jazzy” - Bob Brookmeyer “If Wynton Marsalis were to die today he wouldn’t have contributed a single note to the jazz tradition” - Bob Brookmeyer close quote
