Gary, you've nailed the problem. When you "catch" the jazz flu, you don't want to play for people who wouldn't want to hear your best.

Luckily, Rory is finally making the kind of money he's worth.

I'm really proud of him.

And, Gary, Rory plays that way because he can. It's easy to play yourself out of a job.

PS I can't believe that ANY crowd would run a player off after he played that way. That kind of talent is universal.We have to watch out for the "sour grapes" syndrome.

Can't argue with that, Russ.

It's a rare talent to be sure.
All the best,

I vote for playing not as elaborate, and with feeling.

Here is a rendition of Georgia, using instruments to achieve what Ray Charles did vocally.

Love it, Jerry. These guys have really mastered their instruments, and they, obviously, are great entertainers as well. And, did you notice all the young people in the audience? They, apparently, liked what they heard and saw as well.

Good find,

Gary cool

I have listened to the Master, Boo, but I really don't want to sound like him. I want to sound more like myself when I sing. wink If your telephone rings, let Penny answer it. smile

Taike, is that Avatar for all of the members here? Or maybe just Nigel, perhaps the UK folks, Americans, our Vietnamese friends perhaps? Oh I bet me, Russ and Chas just the Jazz guys right? Please explain. I'm sure that we are all wondering.
