paul secor Posted January 2, 2013 Report Share Posted January 2, 2013 Fell across this blog, which attempts to review various Mosaic reissues. In this case, a review of Cartler/Bradford set takes the view that the new thing replacing hard bop (jealous ensues, yada yada, yada). Thought it was related to the discussion on this thread. Mosaic Reviews: John Carter and Bobby Bradford Huh, I wrote that almost two years ago. Not sure if my opinion still holds. I do think, though, that hard bop as a genre was vital to jazz music until the early 1960s, by which point it was largely played out and overly formulaic. Of course, a lot of free jazz is also overly formulaic these days as well. Eventually everything gets played out. Have just started reading some of your blog posts. Some interesting stuff there - thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
