Regarding the numerous comments about how P2 somehow doesn't live up to 
highest level of work... calling it "fusion-like noodling"... "not 
groundbreaking" etc.

Are there any of you out there who actually prefer looser "open" jamming 
minimal imposed structure? Possibly with each member bringing their own 
compositional ideas in the form of "surprises" which they employ at random 
response to the nature of the improv?

I don't personally have "Space Groove" yet (but will)... I saw the Santa 
show and thought it was spectacular...
