Well stated observation. Sometimes musicians play to keep themselves

some by well known harmonica players. It doesn't matter that I "get it" -
and I do - the result is still an experience that I wouldn't want to revisit.
In the midst of the ol' IAJE Conventions, after many sets of musicians
showing how "out" they play together, all it took was one set w/Dr. Lonnie Liston
Smith or Stanley Turrentine to totally re-unite and electrify the large
While exploring the outer boundaries of music, it is nice to bring it all

Amazing musicians, but I feel they were out of touch with the
comprehension of most people. Every tune featured polyrhythms so complex
that it was virtually impossible to tell where the '1' was, or feel any
groove at all, and the soloing was all very long and essentially atonal.
