Not as far as I am concerned...I highly respect the young players' chops, dedication, study habits, and all of that. What I have been commenting on is the seeming sameness in sound, style and concept so many music school jazzers have due to the use of the same teaching methods and materials.

I'm certain many of the younger players do have a unique voice - I'd like to hear more of them as they develop a sound of their own.

What does NOT adhere to my boomer esthetic is rap music. I still am not a big fan, apologies to all rap and hip-hop musicians.
