No matter what instrument you are playing, you can't miss the first beat or you're through.
Reminds me too of Bootsy's Basic Funk Formula
Some time ago, the tenor saxophonist Frank Foster was playing a street concert from the Jazzmobile in Harlem. He called out for blues in B-flat. A young tenor player began to play "out" from the first chorus, playing sounds that had no relationship to the harmonic progression or rhythmic setting.
Forester stopped him.
"What are you doing?"
"Just playing what I feel."
"Well, feel something in B-flat, motherfucker"
(Not sure what book this is from, but a scan is making the HONK rounds)

I'm glad my pistachio shells a forming a relatively happy community, but not quite the amount of diversity I'd like to see.

Chuffed with the "duck" theme for my iPhone, to go along with its new yellow silicone case.
