Default Re: Jim Black on Ari Hoenig

Only my opinion but this controversy (or similar ones) has transcended from generation generation. I agree that it's fine if they both exist together. I recall reading some of the posts Armstrong was quoted back in Downbeat when he did a blindfold. He bashed plenty. Likewise, plenty bashed him. I'm sure there's plenty more as well to be had/found on the same topic.

Jazz is so much about interpretation so as a result the rehashing and reworking of existing songs I'm not sure will ever go away. To me, this is good but at the same time I enjoy listening to original material.
