16:49 Miles is playing the drums most of the time, but usually if they did shots without his face it was a pro jazz drummer filling in (ba-dum-tss) for the harder parts. Also, it seems like he didn't watch Whiplash since he talked a while about the drummer just suddenly starting without the director counting. The whole point of that part is him getting back at Simmons' character (the band director) for tricking him into playing a song on stage that Miles didn't know. Especially by suddenly starting the uptempo Caravan in the middle of Simmons talking to the audience saying the band was about to play a slow downtempo song next.

All original jazzers were African American but don’t forget that even interracial ppl are dubbed Black here colloquially then and now. There definitely were Europeans at the beginning, lending Modes and notation although it is a Black art form.

I feel like you missed the point of why Miles Tellers character walks onto the stage and plays without waiting: Fletcher just made him screw up on purpose by leading the band with a song Miles didn't know and wasn't given the sheet music for, which would've ended any jazz career Miles would've had. What Miles did was in retaliation.

It's funny what he says about the whole "Jazz is Dead" thing in La La Land because that was exactly John Legend''s characters points and why he was so interested in changing up styles. But he was treated like the bad guy and Ryan Goslings character the hero

I'm glad to have heard what he said about there being "no wrong notes in jazz, but there are wrong notes in jazz," especially the difference between purposeful wrong notes and accidental wrong notes. I'm classically trained on the saxophone, but I've played in a lot of jazz ensembles throughout my former career. One thing that bugs me a lot about my classical musician friends is when they say "there's no wrong notes in jazz" as a critique. Anyone who says that doesn't really understand jazz at all. In jazz, sometimes there's a time to play a wrong note on purpose as you're improvising. But when there's something in the music that's clearly laid out, there's *no* time for a wrong note, and it becomes obvious. There *are* wrong notes in jazz; the point is what the purpose behind them is. In fact, pianist Bill Evans is famous for saying, "There are no wrong notes, only wrong resolutions." He viewed "mistakes" as a valued skill in jazz improvisation. To be a truly skilled jazz musician is to take a clear mistake and resolve it. In this respect, there are no "wrong notes" but there are wrong notes. Bill Evans' philosophy gets to the heart of jazz. I love both classical and jazz music. Jazz is creative; classical is very regimented. Both are beautiful. But there are even purposeful wrong notes in classical music. That's what dissonant chords are. So, to say there are "no wrong notes in jazz" as a negative critique is really just due to ignorance more than it is an educated fact.

Can someone help me. I caught a movie YEARS ago that was about a Trumpet player that played with Big bands and orchestras but lost it all to drugs and alcohol. I've completely forgot the name of the film but I know that it was Arturo Sandaval who recorded the trumpet for the movie. I've tried looking it up but I can't find it. Any help would be appreciated

I find it hilarious that he talks specifically about the boring background "smooth jazz" music phenomenon, and whoever edited this decided to absolutely BUMP some obnoxiously loud elevator music over everything he says.

The first bit about whiplash I kinda have to disagree. The context of that happening was that the drummer got tricked by the band director and he ended up running off the stage crying. Him Walking back on and taking control like that was MEANT to be a massive f*** you to the director for potentially killing his career. Of course everyone was confused that was the point. Of course that wouldn’t happen in real life. I would have loved for him to talk more about the personality of the director. But as a whole I absolutely LOVED this video. I wanna watch all the movies in the list

Loved his insight on the "Jazz is dying" line. John Legend basically makes that same point in the movie: that jazz is as much about changing as it is about the music, and if Sebastian wants to really keep jazz alive, he can't try to keep it in the past.
