Has anyone else seen this video: https://youtu.be/a2XnB5G6oSc? Hal starts out by saying, “I think it’s time we stopped counting.” He’s talking about counting quart note based time. He’s right in that students these days aren’t taught enough about syncopation. You can hear it in their solos where the emphasis is more on the downbeat.
This is a guy with a massive amount of wisdom about jazz.
