This article argues that the Sydney-based jazz improvisers The Necks have pursued a successful career over 25 years despite the scathing review given them by prominent US jazz critic John Litweiler, and that contrary to Litweiler's account, they in fact form part of a continuing tradition (a 'changing same') in jazz started by Miles Davis's album Kind of Blue. The article consists mostly of a discussion between the author and group members Chris Abrahams and Lloyd Swanton. © Equinox Publishing Ltd 2013.
