I am so tired of technological glitches. The more complicated this world becomes, the more frustrated I have become.
Yet it's hard for me to imagine life without the Net. In fact, I am so wired its disgusting. I'm so dependent on these machines, I feel like the six million dollar man, without the hair. In fact, I'm a online junkie. Unless I'm connected, unless everything's working, I flip out. Well, not totally, but...

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.
