Bozeman is amazing
Gary Boyd
01:50:17
also, this isn't necessarily prog metal related but i had a question pop up in my head when you were describing the traits of prog. A lot of those terms match up with definitions of jazz fusion. Is it safe to safe Jazz Fusion is really just Progressive Jazz, or are they separate enough entities?
Juan Nava
01:50:26
Just for fun, what off-the-wall genre would you like to see a band implement. My vote is mariachi music :)
Gary Boyd
01:50:31
