Re: John Gilmore in Jazz Journal International

and they persist in playing up older obscure English swing musicians at the expense of much more recent developments, ie. bop and beyond.

This reminds me of the classical music world, where early 20th century music, e.g. Stravinksy, is still considered "new" even though it's nearly 100 years old. I suppose it's an achievement to write music which will always sound "new" no matter how old it gets.
