just wondering if anyone has any experience of the Lydian Chromatic Concept ?
Sounds kind of interesting but I don't know if it's worth buying the book.
Anyone who knows about it and found it useful?
I've got to admit - it sounds kind of dodgy.. like someone trying to legitimize jazz by constructing this grand theory. But this is only my impression - without knowing too much about it.
Also, checked out some of George Russell's music . Sounds pretty average, like someone who tried to learn jazz from a textbook but he seems to have a pretty big reputation in some parts of the jazz world. Maybe that album is not his best work?
I'd be interested in anyone's opinion about "the concept".
