<<<<<<<<<<I'm not saying that early New Orleans jazz was ever in strict
two/four. To the contrary, there was nothing strict about it at all; I
still think it was a combination, a smoothed-out combination of the two.
Great players like John Lindsey knew exactly how to manipulate this
I promise to be quiet now. Butch Thompson >>>>>>>>>>>
Great contribution, IMHO it's exactly that. And that's is one of the
great "secrets" of making a band swing like hell, with a combination of
very carefully sparsely applied "spanish tinge" on the piano left hand
and/or on the bass beat.
Please don't be quiet! ;-)
