Chaos, however, was nowhere to be found in the beer glasses. North Coast supplied the beer for the evening with Brother Thelonious taking center stage. Brother Thelonious, by the way, is dark in color, but has that classic Belgian taste (maybe a hint of clove?); and smooth as silk pajamas. Beer and jazz; perfect for swingin' and swiggin.'
I love jazz because next to my kids, it's the love of my life.
I was first exposed to jazz by Joe Rico from a tiny station in Niagara Falls in 1954 when I was 13.
The best show I ever attended was Maynard Ferguson who blew the roof off Massey Hall in the late 50s.
My advice to new listeners is to listen to everything you can and then listen again.
