Get some George Smith cds. He was one of the great (probably the best) west coast harp players and he influenced a lot of players out there, including Rod Piazza and William Clarke.
Glad you mentioned Clarke, because you reminded me of this video I saw here. I just looked him up and I was sorry to read he died in 1996 at only 45.
However this video puzzled me about the mix of jazz and blues on the west coast, because one guitarist is playing a hollow body with a smooth jazz sound, as Clark is playing a Mississippi sax.
New to me. Bill

I don't know - it kind of depends on where you listen to Jazz.
If you think there needs to be a bold musical revolution, then pick up your horn and blow Gabriel blow.

I'm talking about radio mostly, I was a big fan of the Mahavishnu Orchestra's first 2, and My Goals Beyond.
Because I'm a bass player I hear a lot of chatter about the late Jaco Pastorius and I built a bass like his, but I had a listen to Weather Report's Birdland, today it sounds too cutesy/sweet for me to bear.
No message except, be mellow and cute. :)
As for taking up my own horn, I have another instrument.
You do it Dan, and please don't go cutesy/sweet.

In a sense, of course you are also hearing a homogenised - shared - product at many of these performances, but I don't think that making music part of our daily lives does the music any harm.

If you think there needs to be a bold musical revolution, then pick up your horn and blow Gabriel blow.




But your mileage may vary; if all you're talking about is the music in the background of TV commercials, I can't help you.

I think that's what you're talking about. If it don't have a little swing or bop then the Blues foundation isn't there and it frankly looses something.
