  I'll start this by saying I don't need your sarcasm. Really. Secondly, I am a musician and a good one so your "musicians point of view" in this case was unnecessary. I'm also a programmer. I understand very clearly about the "open" possibilities the chordless trio presents and it's arrogant for you to assume that perhaps I don't. Why else would you share that info and have it attached to my post? Your response explaining your musical example from my perspective can be interpreted that I don't know these things.....particularly when I didn't asked for the information you took it upon yourself to share - as a response to my post. Mine really was about why I like Joshua's CD and a little about why for some it's difficult to hear the chordless trio. Your explanation of how scales can be used had little to do with what I was talking about....even as a "sidebar." As a separate train of thought it's good info to share but not in this case. There are no "rules" here outside of
 respecting the other person but a little more careful reading of ones post before you respond....at least to mine..... would be appreciated.

My initial point about this turned into something else.....a classroom
about how you can use scales which was puzzling to me and really added
nothing to what I was talking about.

Excuse me, I'm new to the list, and don't really know "the rules" around

My intention (which seems to have failed), was merely to add a sidebar
from a musician's point of view to the discussion about the Joshua
Redmond Trio; about how that particular lineup (saxophone-bass-drums -
actually, it could be any horn trio, or a guitar trio for that matter)
has offered a lot of freedom to improvisers due to the "open-ness"
provided when the piano or guitar are absent from the traditional rhythm
section. My tonal illustration was merely that - an illustration of why,
harmonically, it's a more open field.

Excuse me for stepping on your well-waxed shoes...no harm, no foul, I
