Re: Jim Black on Ari Hoenig
I have to admit I had not read the quote until I saw the last two responses by gretsch and Jeff......
in my opinion Black sounds like an arrogant ignorant fool
what pro in this day and age publicly speaks that way about his peers as if he is some untouchable legend ....... especially after a "blind listen" ......I suspect he knew exactly who he was listening to .. ..completely unwarranted
and for someone who sounds like every avant player in Brooklyn he has an awful lot to say about one having their own sound and being recognizable.
I'll take Hoenig over Black any and every day of the week
in all honesty .....Ari IS everything Jim WANTS to be
not a good look on Mr. Blacks part......shame on him
....and just a quick question.....does he know what jazz is all about and been all about since its inception ?....just curious
it's about expression and interpretation.......and often someones interpretation of someone else's tune........what great jazz musician in the history of this music has not interpreted someone else's piece on their records ?
Black just went down a few notches in my book
