I wasn't likening the YouTube piping video to the playing of John Coltrane. I was using Trane as an example of a person who could play within the idiom of jazz and then push the boundaries and break new ground for other like minded players such as Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders and even Albert Ayler to co create and expand further. My reasoning is that ALL these players weather you like what they achieved or not had a command of their instrument I.e they had chops and could play within the tradition or idiom they chose. They worked hard at perfecting their skills as musicians and performers.
To point out that the music in the YouTube clip was perfectly legitimate and it's up to the individual to enjoy whatever they wish to enjoy.
What bensdad is saying is that the performer has barely mastered the basic techniques and intricacies of this instrument. I have been piping for around 20 years myself and I would not say I have anywhere near perfected the Uilleann Pipes... But I have worked damn hard to become as proficient as I can be.
To clarify, I do think that a performer should have a good grasp of how to play his or her chosen instrument BEFORE venturing into new horizons.
BUT as I stated previously it matters not one jot if the listener enjoys the music thats all that counts... I'm giving my reasons why I think the performer needs to address some fundamental issues regarding technique.... But what do I know
