Jazz Lovers Series: Hugh Hefner

If we were to consider a Mount Rushmore of famous Jazz aficionados, Hugh Hefner would definitely be among the short list of candidates to make the monument. Along with Clint Eastwood, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and our own Commodore Ricci (whose lifestyle in the glamorous suburbs of Philadelphia rivals that of Hefner's). As for Your Own Personal Genius, I would prefer to be on the Stone Mountain of Jazz, along with fellow Southerner C. Michael Bailey.

Till next time, kids, exit to your right and enjoy the rest of AAJ.

* Which also happens to be my mother's birthday. Coincidence? Yes. Yes, it is.

** This probably isn't true.
