Jon, I know where you are coming from, but don't agree. Why? Because to me Wynton's playing represents a "new" type of jazz synthed from countless earlier eras with a BIG chunk of urban polish. I think you mean that he is not a "classical" jazz player. He sure can swing, arrange, and his choruses are inspired, they just don't fit in any previous "window". Isn't that what Jazz has been about from the beginning? If I go into any concert with style "expectations", I may miss something important. I consider Wynton "important" for the jazz world. Jon, you can appreciate Wynton in your own way, that is cool. Nothing to heal!
