Good, quick, or fast: You can only get two out of three.
I am an educator and do believe the future of jazz is heavily influenced by people in a position such as mine.
My Jazz Story
My mother was a jazz singer. Honestly, she wasn't famous but she enjoyed herself very much every time she was on stage. For her, it wasn't about fortune or fame but love and passion of the art. That's what I look for in an artist and it guides who I listen to.
