Default Re: Wynton Marsalis

I know you'll probably like this Jay but I'll ask anyway. Why should people be looking for "innovation" in an art form that is 100 years old? I just don't hear it happening and if it is I am asking the question, where? please inform me. That doesn't mean I like what I hear any less. It doesn't man that I don't like to be challenged with what I hear. I could roll off 20 pieces of music, 10 of which would be radically innovative, and for me, I wouldn't love them any more than the other 10 that weren't. In 1913, Stravinsky was writing The Rite of Spring and Ravel was writing his neo-classical Le Tombeau dun Couperin. In ten years, Stravinsky was a neo-classicist. Ravel never became an expressionist. But you now, there something wrong with me if I think like that. Not everyone is going to innovate.
