What does it matter to you, this is what I don't understand.
Because Jay his out of tune meandering penatonic pop noodling craps a big one over top of the thing with actual real substance underneath dimishing the original recording to the same level of complete mediocrity for those not knowing the difference unfortunately. Can I be any more clear on that for heaven's sake?

Yes i'm passionate about this kind of horrid disrespect both for the music and the musicians who's blood and trail blazing jazz life experiences went into it in the first place. No winners only loosers right across the board when these endeavors in the name of "music" and usually a quick money occur in my view.

No simple trolling or wallflower behavior here from me in this debate and thoughts on the subject......
