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.

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

I read the book again and I feel some doubts about this subject. If I want to create an official scale I need to put in the scale the root and the raised fourth to achieve the requirements? I´m very interested in this point, because I have worked in exotic scales in a book I writed a years ago, but I don`t knowed about the concept and now I want to adapt my explorations to the level of vertical gravity.

The main thing is to establish the tonal order of the scales you are creating. See this chart: http://www.lydianchromaticconcept.com/lccoto_2.html
It is not necessary for the scale to have a raised fourth at all. If my new official scale is 1b2467, what tonal order does it belong to?

Well, I see, this scale (1b234567) it´s a 12 tonal order scale because it have bII degree. Thank you for the explanation. I understand then that the presence of the fourth raised or not is only a way to say if this scale is vertical or horizontal approached.
