References[edit]

When adding text to articles, please remember to provide reliable 3rd party references. I don't disagree about the influences on Free Jazz (though see interviews with Cage himself on the subject), but an assertion that people were serious is essentially point-of-view and needs to be grounded in something tangible. AllyD (talk) 06:44, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

  • And please also use the Edit Summary? It makes it easier for other editors watching article changes. AllyD (talk) 06:46, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Seconding what AllyD said. One change in particular caught me attention: the lede now says "free jazz is alternately described as an attempt to return jazz to its roots, or to unearth a 'primitive' collective experience." "Alternately described as...," by whom? (See WP:WEASEL.) And is it really just one or the other? Generally, anything set forth in the lede should be corroborated, with sources, somewhere else in the text. That's just the first thing that caught my eye – "Why Free Jazz?" really needs attribution as well. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 20:21, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure why you've reverted the article, as you seem to have acknowledged where AllyD and I are coming from, yet your revert doesn't address any of the WP:V issues. You mentioned that you are "still at work" on this – may I suggest not using the article itself as a working draft (especially until verifiability is resolved)? Your personal history is genuinely intriguing, though I hope you don't mean to draw from this when you work on the article (as it's impossible to verify – please see WP:EXPERTISE). Thanks, -- Gyrofrog (talk) 17:48, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
