In a previous post I proposed that a compensation is required when limits are ignored or resisted. Here's another way of thinking about the "compensation" or push-back on the inevitability of limits:

In a recent Downbeat article on the anniversary of Duke Ellington's Money Jungle, MMW bassist Chris Wood alludes to the force required to overcome conventions or limits. He quotes guitarist Marc Ribot's mantra: "If you're gonna do it wrong, do it strong!" That's worth remembering.
