Bebop: An Acquired Taste

I’m still developing my taste for bebop, initially I found it so fast that I just felt that there wasn’t much melody and the speed was just compensating for that. Speed for speed’s sake doesn’t really impress me. In my musical brain class, we talked about the limit of our processing ability, when someone does a piano rake its sounds nice when we hear it as a distinct whole descending sound. Trying to hear every note isn’t always beneficial, and to some extent that is true to all music, and especially with bebop.
