No words needed. This is a bar-by-bar analysis of Chick's solo performance in Vienne in 2012. Includes discussions about modal interchange, ten drummers, wet/dry sound textures, etc..

Thank you Dave, entertaining as always. I found the point about calm and frenetic music particularly interesting in that if the music becomes extremely frenetic I have always felt a peculiar state of detached serenity, like observing a bustling metropolis from the nineteenth floor. I have observed this many times in my own recordings but it might not apply to jazz of course. Somewhere in the middle ranges of prolixity the listening brain starts to chunk musical events because it cannot perceive them individually, as when a viewer increases the distance from an intricate painting. Do you find this too or am I talking nonsense ?
