    I have been talking with him on another thread.
    Nahh, he doesn't know me, although it sounds like he does. I think that was a cryptic reference to someone else on this forum.

These musicians obviously look upon 'electronic' programmed music as a valuable tool, not as a term for stereotyping music. Ideas are ideas. Got any? Meet me backstage if you do.
    I mean musicians that use electronic things to make sounds (not in making recordings) I never heard of the people you mention

    Well I do look upon her as you would a beloved daughter,
    @millions she is neither just a very intelligent woman on the beginning of her career but doesn't say much in fact just the opposite to me.

    ok teddy/JHC...what a team! Never heard of John Mclaughlin? Oh, well, she's dressed for success. Universal appeal. Interstellar ideal. International feel.

    meanwhile, back in Detroit...

    A second Jo berg...........so much for opening the market, even in my small village there are empty shops, juvenile crime etc. most of the jobs have migrated to the cities and the manufacturing off to China, absolute madness all for consumerism and the dollar, utter greed. end of mini rant

    To be specific, and agree with millions so he suffers no inappropriate association with me, no I don't know him.
    I was just riffing offa what was typed already. I'm glad calling him a guitarbot didn't set him off on a page rage.

    When I attended rehearsals for a Mayan flute band, I heard music that was thousands of years old, and very jazzy.
    They were calling down the wind of the mountains, and I felt it.

    I think "free jazz" was expressing a lot of anger. Even very late Coltrane, like Interstellar Regions and Ascension. They were also spiritual. I think it was the black man's attempt to "take jazz back" from all the people, cultures, and industries which had assimilated it, and transformed it into entertainment, and commodified it.

    They wanted jazz to once again be the artistic expression of black Americans, and not the soundtrack for TV shows like Peter Gunn, Mannix, and Perry Mason.

    John Watt, no harm done, riff on brother.
