RE: For G-bashers

Title: RE: For G-bashers

 " there is fairly well-founded scuttlebut that his last live trio cd had many many edits per tune to cobble together the "more perfect" solo. being the "jazz purist" that i am, i don't think that's really kosher for a "live" jazz disc  - - especially if you have a rep as an improvisor. (but then i think pop bands like u2 doing "fixes" and sweetener on "live" albums blows too.)

I'm curious as to how much "sweetener" is required by management as opposed to the band themselves *wanting* to fix some glitches.  Case in point: The Doors; BACKSTAGE AND DANGEROUS: THE PRIVATE REHEARSAL.  This was album is culled from one of those fixing dates.  The idea was to leave all the gear set up after the show, and come back the next day.  This way, the band could sound pretty much the same acoustically.  However, the Doors didn't like the idea of altering the live album, and sabotaged the recording session.  The result is a lot of fun to listen to, although it took 30 some odd years to be released to the public.
