    Jaco's almost as good as Zawinul - but not quite.

    Zawinul is the poopie, for a guy who doesn't even know theory especially

    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.

    Just sayin'...
