    Cissy Strut, C7 forever, how would you solo over it? What are the "devices" you would use? I hear room for electric blues, and electric Coltrane. Martino would convert to minor. Sco would play wide intervals in a non pentatonic snarly way,

    It's a fun, easy tune, what would you play to it? Please post you jamming on it.

    Yea, Third Stone is cool. I know the head well, after that, it get's a little too personal, meaning I need to stop and listen to Jimi doing his thing getting personal.

    Someone on that Scofield session really just needed to walk over to the Clavinet player and tell him to take a smoke break.

    The good news is the head of Third Stone is a great leaping off point. Reminds me of Hirum Bullock and Jaco playing Third Stone.

    Not Scofield. The keyb player playing intermittent stabby chords not really in time.

    Not really on a clavinet, either.

    Matt Schofield does a great take on his Live Trio album. The backing tonality is more m7/#9 than straight dominant. He does a cool 32nd note strumming pattern over chromatic chord grips during his solo, very compelling!

    Sounds more like an organ patch and the timing sounds fine too.

    Saxist friend makes me at least play blues changes under his solo.

    Love Oz's version too, especially how he transformed the head into the syncopated craziness

    Yeah right, of course you know better than Oz... Should he have played dorian lines on everything with an unplugged PRS in front of a crappy webcam?

    I'm not questioning the talent pool, and variety is the spice of life, but if I walked into a club and they were playing, it'd be one beer and gone. That type of music doesn't do a thing for me. YMMV!

    All I know is that in booklet that accompanies the Rhino Meters box set, there is picture of them sitting around a table looking extremely toasted.
