Of course, music is a frequent victim of such oft brutal and dismissive exercises and, as a result, the artist is both banished and liberated into the welcoming aural universe of the relative free-thinker.
I love jazz because it swings.
I was first exposed to jazz in Houston.
I met Joe LoCascio and Bob Henschen.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Martino.
The first jazz record I bought was Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
My advice to new listeners is to relax on 2 and 4 beats.
