re: top 10 improvisors/jami sieber

i can't decide on 10 right now, but if we're talking
coltrane and dolphy, then i think i have to include

mccoy tyner!!!! i.e. trane's longtime piano player.

what i love about his improvisations is the simplicity
and restraint. often times he would stick to whole
chords instead of singlenote slickness, resulting in a
majestic cacauphony(sp?) of thick, solid jazz noise
that kind of balanced out tranes singlenote

and yer welcome /t, i'm glad you picked up lush
mechanique. everyone should probably keep an eye out
for "lotus fire" when it comes out. she's recording w/
the thai elephant orchestra.
