listen the guitar at the end of “Your Gold Teeth” on “Countdown to Ecstasy”, Steely Dan’s 2nd album. It’s not just guitar. They start a Thelonius style jam that just melts the inches as the music fills your soul with a goddam unfettered determination to…well, something, anyway.
Also, just because a handful of people got together and formed a committee and came up with a list of “standards”, well, that doesn’t mean shit. It means that a bunch of people got together and said, “based on our opinions, this is how it’s gonna be.”
