Re: “Louder than words

Jazz is far beyond the "potential" stage. Jazz is firmly established as America's "classical" music. Modern Jazz is far more interesting than modern experimental "classical" music. On the other hand, Rock and Roll is a younger cousin to Jazz. Both styles spring from the same roots and the best progressive Rock and Roll starts to sound like Jazz. In the future, Rock may come to be considered just another Jazz style, like Dixieland, Bebop, etc.

Re: “Louder than words

Instrumental jazz's potential is far greater than than that of instrumental rock. IF you get bored with rock and rap, come out and see some jazz here in the Springs.

Re: “O rocker, where art thou?

Maybe next a column complaining about duck face poses?

One decent thing to come out of this trend is that some have discovered great artists as they jumped on the bandwagon and turned their backs on Slash's solo. Norman Blake won a Grammy™ for his work on O' Brother Where Art Thou? He certainly deserved it. But what's better is the amount of newcomers that are checking out his new album, Wood, Wire & Words. Bandwagons are very much annoying. And there are musical consequences for sure, as this column points out. However at the end of the day, a forgotten and ignored by the masses genre of music has been rediscovered. It will morph eventually. Maybe the world is now ready for RapGrass. Shit... now I want to shower after typing that.

The Most Lamentable Tragedy is difficult and ambitious, and there’s a lot of fluff, but the bare bones are beautiful http://killingthebreeze.com/titus-andronicus-the-most-lamentable-tragedy-your-album-of-the-day/

Stopped reading after Let It Happen was referred to as contrived. Risibly absurd.
