Let's address my "ignorance and judgement,", and how these instrument owners are "so ubiquitous in modern jazz recorded in the last 20 years." I have never heard of any of them, and I spent 40 years in the music business working with national acts at the highest level. Buddy Rich, all the Motown acts, Tony Bennett, Henry Mancini, are just a few of them. I hired some of the greatest jazz players in the country. Music regardless of genre is either good or bad, and Duke Ellington agreed with that opinion. It is true today just as it was true going back many generations. I joined a new Buddy Rich Orchestra in NYC in 1976. I was the only guy from outside of NYC, and everyone in there was a name musician who I had records of, or who were legends in the business. The band was amazing, and it had killer players. I know what good music and good musicians sound like, and this ain't it.Ok man, I'm really not trying to pick a fight here but your ignorance and judgment is a little bewildering - Eric Harland, Aaron Parks, Matt Penman, Matt Garrison and Alex Sipiagin are all on literally hundreds of records each, they're so ubiquitous in modern jazz recorded in the last 20 years that it's pretty much impossible not to have heard them. Again, no judgement if you don't like their records or their aesthetic but please show some respect for their artistry and commitment. Comparing their musical voices to flatulence is both degrading and embarrassing.
