OTOH, to be fair, it seems like typical lazy jazz thinking, where enharmonics are often ambiguous, who cares, and things don't have to be spelled out because, like, we all know how it works, man...

What do those mean?

Are the subjects he talk about bulls*t?

(Just asking. I'm at the "learning" level. I don't get the criticism.)

He's a very knowledgeable guy, but he's being a little lazy (just occasionally) with his terminology - as jazz musicians often are. He's forgetting (I suspect) that his audience is not musicians with a similar experience or background who take a lot of the same stuff for granted, and that some (like yourself) need the terminology to be precise and unambiguous.

Your questions here are picking up on precisely those ambiguities, highlighting that (at those moments) he is not explaining himself as well as he might - and I'm sure he could if he tried.

In other words a man with a lot of knowledge, albeit not the best teacher.
