Dolphy's Synthetic Formations

The main body of the LCC and its practical application, including all 4 published versions of Book 1 with their inserts: the 1959 tan cover; the 1959 light green cover Japanese edition; the 1970‘s white cover, which adds an illustrated River Trip to the 1959 edition, and the currently available Fourth Edition, 2001.

The authorization code is the first word on Page 198 of the Fourth Edition of the LCCTO.

An open letter from Alice Russell. June 21, 2011, Brookline, Massachusetts. 1. DO NOT make insulting, mean spirited remarks about anyone or their work; there are a plethora of sites where you can rant unfettered. If you attack someone personally, your comments will be removed. You can post it, but I'm not paying for it. Go elsewhere, and let those artists who are actually interested in discussion and learning have the floor. 2. There will be NO posting of or links to copyrighted material without permission of the copyright owner. That's the law. And if you respect the work of people who make meaningful contributions, you should have no problem following this policy. 3. I appreciate many of the postings from so many of you. Please don't feel you have to spend your time "defending" the LCC to those who come here with the express purpose of disproving it. George worked for decades to disprove it himself; if you know his music, there's no question that it has gravity. And a final word: George was famous for his refusal to lower his standards in all areas of his life, no matter the cost. He twice refused concerts of his music at Lincoln Center Jazz because of their early position on what was authentically jazz. So save any speculation about the level of him as an artist and a man. The quotes on our websites were not written by George; they were written by critics/writers/scholars/fans over many years. Sincerely, Alice

Very good. The Dolphy material is going to take some digestion. Dang.

How did you like hearing your music,"Open Letter", coming back at you from someone else?


Very cool! That was a nice surprise.

Great idea, trying it in 3 like that.

I notice you went for more open voicings on the 3rd 4 bar phrase, where I had been going for fuller voicings so as to hear the dissonance of the melody a little more.

Nice to hear your take!

'the great imposter on piano.'


Bob, I wonder if you could explain this about Jaki. Is this a known nickname, or something that you are coming up with? Just curious about him.

I first heard that from Ron Kuzner, a legendary jazz dj, now deceased. It's common here in the hinterlands, but I know not beyond that. It's an affectionate reference to Byard's amazing ability to go from one style to another. Who else would play with Dolphy and slip into Willie the Lion Smith?

ML, great post. It does make me think more about exactly what I would want to hear.

I have done a more thorough job on occasion, when I was writing for a whole band and knew that it was going to be performed.

I never thought anyone would play this. :) But I could have been more specific even on the lead sheet, or have moved to a piano score at least.
