I hope I've never crossed that threshold.
Originals, perhaps is where the' note lust ' comes in. And then hopefully, taste raises it's head.
That being said; in charting the progress of favourite bands/ artists; I think that many players have perhaps pushed too hard in the name of progress.
Well, there's nothing wrong with pushing the envelope in the name of progress. I just think alot of players confuse progress with making a living. Not everyone can be Simon Phillips and make an album with Jeff Beck producing music like Space Boogie
and get away with it ;)
I think Pol mentioned all that corporate muck jazz being thrown about during the 80s, and it's true. Oddly enough you can still get new muck jazz like that today. Even better, you don't have to buy a whole album of it, thanks to iTunes, eh?
