Thank you Spencer, Jon, Mike (bullfrog), Ice is nice at twice the price. and ‘He’s a Trip’,  for your inputs. I find them illuminating and very correct. 
The players of which we speak are also correct. Inasmuch as they are playing what is commercially acceptable. And they appear to be successful.
Wilson, Popper, Lewis, Willis, Hummel, the guy who never takes his sunglasses off..not even indoors, etc.

I play a few instruments but they are usually over dinner. Where people need to talk to each other. And then dance. I consider myself a swing player.
Not exactly jazz. More like swing. Dang me, dang me, they oughta take a rope and hang me. Swing.  lolol.
