In this podcast, the multifaceted Ben Sidran (my dad) on his 76th birthday, talks about on falling in love with bebop as a young boy, counter culture in the 1960s, jazz as a form of journalism, how to get paid like a musician, his proudest moments, writing a misunderstood rock and roll anthem, getting to Carnegie Hall, facing fears, and what he learned from his heroes (including Mose Allison, Gil Evans, Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Johnny Griffin, and Phil Woods).
