Wanna hear/see somethings exceptiona/l?



  • Man, check this out: Jazz at Lincoln Center with Tap Dancer. Exceptional



  • Among the best tap dancing I have seen, great playing by all, BUT if I had come in cold during any of the long solos I would not have a clue what tune they were playing. All scrambled egg music. ( perhaps I am showing my age).

    Regards, Stuart.

    Not scrambled egg music, because with scrambled eggs, you recognize them and know approximately what's in there. These solos are something like that Chinese food, "Eight Jewels" - looking and smelling nice, but you have no clue whatsoever what's inside. And in some Chinese restaurants, you don't even want to know...



  • Sorry, guys, and no insult intended, but if you know the tune and know contemporary jazz improvisation, you know what the improvisations are doing. That alto player is killer.

    BTW, I'm not implying you have to like it, just saying that if you don't, it doesn't change the quality of the music, in-and-of-itself.
