This is partially in response to Rick’s question in mastering about song order. I’ve heard about a zillion solos on different instruments in my lifetime. Just finished listening to some Louis Armstrong cuts. Question for topic? What makes a good solo as opposed to a bad solo or just a mediocre solo? What is the thought process while you play or produce a solo, ride, lead break, whatever terminology you chose. I really don’t think some people have a desired destination in mind they just blaze of wildly into the night hoping they don’t run off the road before daylight. Any comments?
