  3. To put this out in today's environment where most people are looking for immediate gratification and you get climax's even before they are prepared is a gutsy thing to do. If it isn't loud and in your face immediately a lot of people just tune wonderful stuff like this out. Steve Lacey did a long elaborated improv in Tmockins Square park a few years back, and most people just didn't have the patience to hear it out. Maybe the audience is changing for the better. In-out repeat if necessary had become the preferred method of the day. Foreplay had become passe . GET TO THE ACTION SCENE-so we ended up with one action scene piled on top of another, with no development. Thank you
