Whee, let's OT!

Seeing as how one of my greatest influences always quotes Monk as one of his, 
I should study too. My interest in Jazz currently starts somewhere round 
Miles Davis. Clearly I never listened to Frank Zappa's lyrics properly 
(favourite Zappa is 'Hot Rats' and SUAPYG, which may explain ;-)

Either way, it's got to sound better than what happened when Hendrix and 
Morrison met. But hey, let's not go there.

I'm really much more interested in the music people are making with Linux 
Audio, studying the greats IS important, I'm currently re-acquainting myself 
with Bob Marley, but it's too easy to get bogged down in reproducing a great 
idea that has already been realised, when we have the means at our disposal 
to create great new music ourselves. I mean that.
