We're going to listen to the entire Miles Davis' Bitches Brew. So, be ready for the mystical trumpet of the master. And don't get lost in the piano battle between Joe Zawinul and Chick Corea (and of course Larry Young in Pharaoh's Dance) or drum war between Lenny White (so, yes, a little R&B) and Jack DeJohnette. (In case you buy them at iTunes, you'd lose the very important booklet that includes Ralph J. Gleason's liner: "Music is the greatest of the arts... it cuts through everything, needs no aids...")
Why this volume? I don't know... Maybe because I just read this Kompas feature on Nial Djuliarso. That guy is really something. But, as the article says, his producer chose a "middle way", meaning a "light, easy listening jazz" to "serve the (Indonesian) market demand". Yes, what people here usually mean by "jazz" is something like Dave Koz or Kenny G. Poor Nial...
Or maybe we can ask Nial to play here at the Café? No need to listen to "what market wants". As my econ guys here like to tell me, "supply creates its own demand". I don't know what that means, but I am now writing a composition: "Screw the Market". At least, when there's a need for compromizing, the kind of Miles' fusion is the way to go: don't give up the core.
