    I feel that he may want to convey his love for humanity. He feels the music, maybe not so much counting. Some of the greatest musicians could barely write their name, let alone count the number of letters in it. The more life experience you have, the more stories you can convey, whether it's from the tongue, instrument, or brush. Or I could be full of it, and he's counting the shit out of it, lol

    I recently attended a performance by Vijay Iyer, and he was much more avant garde and unstructured — almost like Cecil Taylor at times.
    I guess he can do anything.

    Not surprised he records for ACT as this immediately made me think of Esbjörn Svensson and Co.

    It's what you feel inside that contributes to the best music and how to express it, not technique..

    From Louis and Bing to Art Tatum and Hank Mobley, jazz and the American Popular Song have been 2 unique arts intertwined as one–a symbiotic relationship. Without one–Berlin, Kern, Gershwin, Rodgers, Duke, Porter, the blues–jazz would have not have had a "message" for its skilled messengers to deliver; but it was also that message that led the aforementioned composers to create The Great American Songbook, a body of original indigenous music that draws throughout on the harmonic and rhythmic  inventions of soulful pyrotechnicians like Hawk, Tatum, Bird, Diz, Trane, Bill Evans.

    If you want to learn to play jazz, lean the American "classics"–the songbook mastered by Tatum and late developed by Coltrane and Bill.  Only then, does it become possible to pick up where Bird and Diz left off, matriculating in the school of bebop that is the only important graduate "degree" for any modern jazz musician.

    That's the "soul "of jazz and American popular music.  But the heartbeat of meaningful improvisation is "swing".  Subtle and flowing as the human pulse, a walking 4/4 bass that at once lifts the music and galvanizes its players–the only "beat" that has produced meaningful extemporaneous improvisation–lyrical melodies that aspire to be creative art." Most people remain clueless about this music.  Start with Paul Gonsalves' 28 choruses  (Ellington at Newport 1956.)

    I'm sorry, but this is extremely sad. Genius? Please. No groove whatsoever.
