Re: That's not cool, it's modal!

Modal jazz was picked up pretty early on by youthful British Jazzers. A lot of people in the free/and other scene's got a lot from it before they got other idea's in their heads. The late Ian Carr's book long unavailable, but out again on Northway Publ 'Music Outside' had a lot of interviews with Harold Riley, Evan Parker, Mike Garrick - all those cats give a real insight how this stuff was important to the development of jazz. Anything I hear on 'Jez Nelsons' Jazz on Three has got into a bit of a tedious rut for years now. It has been years since I saw a hot band like Back Door playing in a room at a pub. I say this as I found an original copy of Back Door on Blakey yesterday, watched On the Buses and saw that the writing on the label has been ripped off the TV credits. In all a very satisfying day.
