How can you not love Jaco?
Jaco's almost as good as Zawinul - but not quite.
Zawinul is the poopie, for a guy who doesn't even know theory especially
Conservatory trained at Konservatorium Wien (Vienna), and Berklee (Boston).
Ah, a buddy of mine must've been mistaken then, he's who I go to for my Weather Report knowledge, now I know not to trust everything he says
Start with this: NO ONE ever got to play with Miles if they did not have an extensive understanding of music theory.
Oh yeah? How do you know? Did Michael Henderson, Airto, or Ricky Wellman have an "extensive understanding" of music theory when they worked with Miles? Are you sure?
It's YOUR challenge. Present some evidence.
I've noticed you like to turn things around like this. I'm not the one who suggested that "NO ONE ever got to play with Miles if they did not have an extensive understanding of music theory". I'm suggesting that you, in fact, wouldn't have a clue what music theory knowledge some of Miles' players had. If you want to present evidence to the contrary, cool. If not... I won't be surprised.
If you have any knowledge of the level of music theory, or lack of, do tell. The suspense is building...
There's no suspense. You can't back up your claim - it's as simple as that.
What this conversation has to do with Jaco being a badass is beyond me
Well, everybody already knew that Jaco was a badass, but not everyone knew that we had a TB member who was privy to the theoretical background of everyone that Miles Davis ever played with. Now that's exciting news. But you're right - I think the above "discussion" has run it's predictable course.
It would certainly be FAR MORE interesting for you to supply your privy information to support that everyone that Miles Davis ever played with did not have an extensive theoretical background.
Not to mention - Red Garland ,Philly Joe Jones, Gerry Mulligan, Tony Williams turned pro at age 13 , J.J.Johnson.
Awesome, the entire band !
Jaco, Joe, Wayne,Erskine etc. are all Gods to me.
Here's another live take but it must have been a pretty off night!
