Jazz Emergent Part 2

They saved the best for part 2. Nice band - 2 Japanese, 2 aftrican am and 1 whitey
amazing to hear the result of a couple of years of Juilliard ear training
on a super talented young jazz drummer. White Alto player obviously going to school with Bird,
sounded wonderful, excellent trumpet player, good ideas, but the cat who stole the show, a cat who
will have to be tops in his generation - the drummer..This was some of the sweetest,
most creative drumming I have heard - will stop by the jazz dept. Today and get his name.
Stay tuned. Must get him on my next record and I am sure Wynton is thinking the same thing.

Eventually
the
lack
of
respect
for
musical
education
will
mean
the baton
will
be
passed
to
other
countries-
unless
it
once again
takes
its
rightful
place
in
all
schools.

Any
musicians
who still believe
training
can't help
them are
not being
free. They
are merely
denying
their
imagination
more choices.

The alto sax is Will Reardon-Anderson. Yeah, he sounds a bit like Bird, but is still a freshman and needs to keep practicing -- after all, Bird did.
