Re: Livelooping with a band..amazing!

Well, I thought I was going to sneak in and get out, but apparently, the 
blackhole has me hooked again! :)  Here we go again. :)

Of cource, what I said is odd.  Some wouldn't expect otherwise. It was 
partly in jest. I'd say the same thing about traditional jazz, country, or 
any past genre.   The thing is, you can probabl find this style of music 
other prior genres  in museums of music, mainly because, well....it's 
history. There is nothing wrong with that.  I appreciate it and think 
should still play it. I even play it once in a while.  I think it needs to 
be preserved, so that people can see history in action in the current 
Is it novel, innovative and earth breaking? No. But that is another matter 
and discussion all together. I think people should continue to play music 
like this, in the same way I think people should study history and learned 
what has been done before.

That just strikes me as an incredibly odd thing to say about music and
the musicians playing it.  Put the music in a museum?  I didn't know
this stuff had a sell by date (some recording techniques, sure).  I
guess in that case most blues, jazz, classical and so on should be put
away to leave room for the fresh music of today.

My appreciation of music is always changing, what sounds boring one
day can inspire me the next.  What I loved yesterday can seem dull and
lifeless a few days later, only to come back full on the next year.

Anyhow, that just seemed like an odd perspective to me.

The worst part of that show to me is the editing (hey let's try to
make it as frenetic as possible).

Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
