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

thanks for the introduction to tj anderson (another hole in my education filled). "the choice between something that you're good at and something that you love... is problematic" is beautiful. on my youtube channel the next movie was thelonious monk solo "coming on the hudson" which seems like the perfect example. i recently got the jazz icons dvd of solo monk in france 1969 - he just plays his heart out.

i also watched these interviews with tj and dj spooky on the future of music and art:

ML and Bob,

I'm catching up on all the great content you've put out here since the last time I signed in!

I have thought about this question before. "the choice between something that you're good at and something that you love".

How do we know that we're good at something? In some ways because of good feedback from others, I think. Maybe not that alone, but that's part of it. So if we work at a mainstream activity and get good feedback, are we good at it? And then what if we work at a niche interest and get less feedback? Are we less good at it? It might seem that way.
