What a great comment - I think I know why Hot Fives&Sevens, and so 
other bands can stand to be listened to several times, unlike what 
Charlie refers to as avant garde/free jazz.

You are full well able to play the part(s) you are listening to, or 
understand them well enough to appreciate the spontaneous invention of 
that phrase. It's become a real part of a jazz vocabulary by imitation. 
It was the genesis of that phrase/sound/cliché - and it's great!

Keep jammin at that keyboard Mr. Suhor.
