Wynton Marsalis Joins the Jazz Police

Remember the story about the Spanish jazz fan who demanded his money back at a festival in Spain because, he claimed, Larry Ochs wasn't playing real jazz?
Well it seems as though Wynton Marsalis agrees with him and wants to contact the senor to congratulate him on his stance and to reward him with a whole heap of his, Marsalis', recordings.
So if you read this and are that hombre or know who he is please contact Giles Tremlett of the Guardian.
The full story and Giles Tremlett's email address are at the other end of this link.
Thanks to Debra Milne for this information.

First let me say I'm not a fan of Larry Ochs' music. I'm not into that kind of music. However, if this man did not like Ochs' music he should have stayed home or gone to something he liked. Calling the police is a waste of time and obnoxious.

Wynton Marsalis should not tread on other musicians lively hoods. It's a big world and I for one would hope there is room for Wynton and Ochs. Here's a good rule, if you don't like the music don't listen to it. For punters, do your research before you buy a ticket.

I seem to remember Wynton having a lot of negative things to say about Miles' Live Evil period.

Some of the musicians on that album:

Miles Davis: trumpet
Wayne Shorter: soprano sax
Joe Zawinul: electric piano -
Chick Corea: electric piano -
John McLaughlin: electric guitar
Dave Holland: electric bass
Jack DeJohnette: drums
Airto Moreira: percussion


Herbie Hancock: electric piano
Keith Jarrett: electric piano
Ron Carter: bass
Hermeto Pascoal: voice
