JazzEd interview with Jamey

I don't think it's a mystery that George Russell's work is the fountain from which much of current jazz pedagogy springs from. Personally I feel that every time the story gets retold it loses some of the magic of the original voice. I also don't think the jazz education has to come from George's work, by any means, but if one is to explore 'vertical' and 'horizontal' playing I can't say I've seen it explained better.
Anyway, in this Jamey Aebersold interview he pretty much lays out the path from George to David Baker to Jamey:

Nice post Sandy. It's great how Jamey Aebersold began as a musician and became a teacher, and then a publisher of jazz theory and practice (early editions of the LCC were always available through him).
