Chervokas I think it is a language thing. I really enjoy your posts and I think I speak for Dzhason too . I realized long ago when you write it is absolutely from the heart and sort of unfiltered but with great respect. Others who might not know you might misinterpret some of what you say as negative in a personal way but I think most of us here on this thread understand you. I for one find the debates to be supremely useful in understanding jazz.
