There was a time when I was knocking on doors and concerned with being recognized in dominant culture.

They just really do exist. For me, anyway.
But you know, if you live an affluent lifestyle, there are all types of trappings that are there that you have to be cognizant of, and you’ve got to try and communicate freely and gain understanding about and then keep moving on, because you know, sometimes lifestyles are chosen for us as opposed to us choosing them.

In the States, this type of jam-band phenomena has opened it up for groups to improvise, admittedly more in the groove area, as opposed to the straight-ahead jazz thing – which is good for me, as that’s one part of where I’m at.

It is true that the Puritans banned all recreation on Sundays and all games of chance, gambling, bear baiting, horse racing, and bowling in or around taverns at all times.
