- May 1 6:02 AM...tracking the conversation about faking it and the turn to jazz
resonated with me (in and out of bands for 30+ years - blues to
wedding to jazz fusion to big band to dixieland, using fake books
all the while).
Then got the daily digest from Training Ideas listserv
yguid=87641327), and there was this link (!):
Which triggered memories of being influenced by Albert Lord's Singer
of Tales (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0674808819/104-0091885-
3974369?v=glance&n=283155) in coming to an understanding of how
human beings were/are able to capture and transmit huge amounts of
information over time in purely oral cultures. Happened to read
this at the same time a professor of language history said something
along the lines of "language is a tool that allows us to endlessly
and continuously improvise original thought and never say things the
same way twice," and I started playing bass for the first time...
All of which, BTW became context for my first reading Situated
Aside - Rosanna: I owe you a response to your challenge re: "In my
practice, I deal with no formal CoPs, but CoPs are all around me."
Got the notes and outline done, but the writing will take some time -
might be enough for a book (oof!). Talk about triggering insight
and growth! Thanks....
