Chaos at the Etihad and all that jazz


Scarborough Jazz Festival's Mike Gordon shows Pep Guardiola the red card..

"It’s not often jazz hits the headlines. What a pity that when it does it displays ignorance of the genre (If every player plays like a jazz musician, it’ll be chaos, 4 January). Pep Guardiola may not like jazz, but he should be aware that it is a highly disciplined music which demands complex musical skills and team spirit. That’s why Ray Charles liked to choose jazz musicians for his tour bands and why many classical performers I know envy the improvisational skills of jazzers – which I would have thought football managers would encourage in their players."
