Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Maybe everywhere else in America but NYC (and its offshoots)... but I can assure you you'll hear as fast of tempos as anywhere if you go to the right places. The Smoke guys call stuff waaaaay up...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

He only calls tunes that fast when this one bass player is on the gig. If the time fluctuates at all, it's usually my fault, as this particular bass player as about as perfect time as anyone I've...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

You just have to do it a lot and learn to relax. I hate playing really fast stuff, but I work with a guy that calls tunes up to about 400 bpm (!!) and then takes long solos. It's brutal, but you get...

Wow, that was really cool. I never really noticed that before. Thank you for pointing that out.

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Exactly. I had a false sense of security going into that gig I mentioned. When I heard the dude play with his regular band, it was loud, but it didn't sound abnormally loud. When I actually got...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

As much as people might say that we play too loudly now, I think the upper limit of dynamics is gone. With mics, horn players no longer need to develop big, Ben-Webster-like sounds. With amps,...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

They're clubs in NY that have their own little scenes, mainly rooted in hard bop, though I find Cleo's to be a lot looser than than Smoke.

I actually like Cleo's. Not crazy about Smoke.

Also, I don't understand what you're trying to say about neo hard boppers not liking him because he doesn't create new music. If anything, he's brought a lot more to the table than the whole...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Can you provide me with recorded examples of WM playing Freddie licks? I'm talking about more recent examples. A lot of us get caught up in the lick thing when we're starting out, and I doubt Wynton...

You want to hear someone try to do Freddie, check out Jim Rotondi.

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Again...I do not advocate being a licks type of player, I typically don't like licks type players, but what people get enjoyment out of is their business. I'll state my opinions, but I'm not going...

I thought it was plenty funny. :)


Who cares? The guy can do whatever he wants to do. I just saw an old article in Downbeat explaining, in print, the "jazz ride pattern." What a load of crap! I...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Yikes! I don't think he's trying to be either a., an authority on Elvin or b., a jazz drummer!


You guys sure do get riled up easily! :)

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Hey, I don't advocate it but different strokes for different folks, I guess. If they're enjoying themselves learning licks, far be it from me to tell them to stop. I agree with how you chose to learn...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I might be wrong, but I think it was just a way for that guy to show the viewer one Elvin-ish "lick." It's just a lick. Of course no one is going to get inside Elvin by seeing some guy on youtube...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I doubt that video is geared towards those who would do an in-depth study of Elvin's playing. Like Matt said, for those looking for a more cookie-cutter approach, it's probably a decent resource.

Re: Things you hate to have happen while drumming

I hate it when my car gets broken into during gigs. That's pretty much the worst.

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

(Alice didn't "sanction" WM playing, btw. She was involved with the Branford DVD. Apparently, she liked their performance of it enough to hire Branford, Tain, and Revis (and Ravi) to play it with her...

Some of it is great. I just think he struck out WAY more than he hit a homer with that stuff, especially right when he got back into the game (around when that incident happened). That's why he...

Cool. I'm fine with that. Don't feel like you need to talk about WM anymore. I'm still game if anyone else does, though. :)


regarding Alice...is it so hard to believe that either her or Elvin...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Yeah, exactly. Have you listened to Miles' music from that era?
