This is isn't mine- I came across it today by chance. It has very few views so it may not been seen around the board very much. Its a longish video (nearly 20 minutes). The author/player
provides his theories on how the Beautiful Jam (Dark Star 2-18-71) came to be played and strangely why it was never again. He has some good theory discussion about the various modes used in the passage. (BTW: Rusty (Dan)... I also watched your vid regarding the Greek modes and found it to be extremely well done and informative... Kudos to you!)

So here it is... I take no credit- only to pass on this really nice video to you all. ... re=related
