i like adam neely, he's got lots of great videos, but you
need to be able to read music

Look, I enjoy jazz as much as the next person (check out
Kamasi Washington—he literally made an album called The
—you can't get any more EPIC than that!), but I
don't think white people will ever be able to truly
understand it. You need to realize that jazz is a unique
product of the African American experience, and all attempts
to analyze the genre have only served to devalue it. Most
scholars now agree that the application of Eurocentric music
theory to jazz is a manifestation of white supremacy.

particular sort of accent, i suppose

it's the same as usual theory but make all your chords at
least seventh and give them weird names

Just like with programming languages, elites wanted to horde
all the knowledge/profit/real theory for themselves, so they
spread massive disinformation and completely obfuscated
everything to confuse everyone else and remove all their

put on Kind Of Blue and noodle along with it for a few
weeks, it doesn't change key much, it's modal jazz

chasing the fucking train
i remember well, in about 2001, when i bought Bitches Brew
on CD, the owner of Spillers Records who is a really big
jazz head, said to me...: we don't do refunds.

i think in retrospect he was probably just as semi-autistic
as me and was trying to get me to say 'oh it's for me!' and
have a discussion, but i was like 'yeh, i know'... 'NO
REFUNDS' is on every one of the fucking hundred or so
receipts ive had from here. RIP Spillers on the Hayes.

today. That was fucking strange place too.

>>> in laymen's terms?
think about writing stepsequences as they are playing,... it
gets pretty fractal
