Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

Well guys, I had a wonderful time on this thread, discussing the larger jazz issues. This past two weeks has easily accounted for my most enjoyable forum experience. IMO, not only did we raise the...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

These days, marching season never entirely goes away, even in diversified programs. Two weeks after the last fall competition is the start of winter guard, and many drumlines begin working on the...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

Many band directors who once demonstrated the time and the dedication to dig in and present quality offerings are now tied down to their all consuming marching band programs. In fact, many American...

Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

I respect that Dogbreath. But even on a thread of such vaunted title, 16 posts from the last page alone either debated the veracity of the total Rich legacy or openly sought to identify an imagined...

Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

This is the greatest Buddy Rich post ever seen on drummerworld. It sums up perfectly what so many of us older guys feel everytime we see inane comments like all he had was chops, he always played his...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

Uniquely enough (at least in the United States and Canada) over 80% of the jazz listening public arrives via participation or listenership of a school ensemble. A 1997 (I think) study insisted that...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

I have to get to work, but wanted to drop a couple of thoughts on the posts that appeared as I slept.

Branford's Love Supreme is a ridiculous project. Again, if he's such a big shot, how about a...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

I for one do not want this thread to end. In my estimation it is the single most intelligent discussion I have witnessed on a percussion forum. Frankly, I'm happy about it, and I thank Stu for...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

OJ, again, I have to admire Gregg. In my observations, his comments are intelligent and insightful. Moreover, he's an outstanding musician. But you may have noticed his more obvious isolation in...

Re: Thought Travis was gonna break the record

No Class A, what I posted was 100% accurate...no debates.

Verdi is third all time, and second in traditional grip.

BTW, I viewed your video. Nice job...you've got good chops for a 14-15 year...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

In all respect, how do you arrive at this conclusion? Post after educated post refutes your contention. Again, the problem is that Marsalis is not trained to understand the delicacies of historical...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

We Wynton detractors are of course aware that he was nurtured under the watchful eye of Ellis Marsalis. If you recall, he is the one Marsalis we admire and respect.

Yes, he did play with Wynton on...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

I wish I had delivered that remarkable response. But it was instead written by Matt Smith. He is the one with the musicial family once based in New Orleans. I was going to reply myself since your...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

It's a common drum forum reaction Gregg. Had this been the Travis thread, your comment would have resulted in a good 40 posts, and at least an equal number of rebuttals (LOL). Since the initiation of...

IMO Unlike the sons, Ellis Marsalis is the real thing. I have always enjoyed his work.

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

Yes, you are right. Debussy originally worshiped the musical contributions of Wagner. But does anyone actually envision a future time when young jazz innovators will be required to shake the totemic...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

Loge, ironically Wagner applies here, but not in the way you probably believe.
Wagner was a callous meglomaniac, who actually had a number of resources at his disposal. His creative youth was rich...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

Loge, I think you are a person who tries to be fair and equitable. But I cannot go along with you on much of this.

Beiderbecke is always one of the two deferred...the token(s) if you will. And...

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

Name one single person who could have been worse, in respect to the very superficial credibility of him you provided in your post.

I agree...innovators are seldom very appealing to first timers....

Re: "New" Legends of Jazz?

There is nothing wrong with repertory music, as long as it is not the only new kind of jazz I am allowed to listen to.
