Re: Ask a Scientist

OK, it's from leftfield for me, i do play guitar, kinda OK, but never got into new-jazz (can i call it that). most of it is indigestible. Modally speaking, i think the peeps into this stuff are on a mission to bring the abstract to the world; not something i'm all that interested in.

OK here is another one. I am not sure a scientist is the best person to ask, but give it your best shot (sic) : why does much (post cool) jazz sound like self indulgent musical masturbation ?


By contrast I currently listening to 1940s Reinhart/Grapelli, and I can almost hum along with it. Nice.
