Fields of wheat, wheat and more wheat, sometimes corn and, periodically, cows. This is what the average New Yorker thinks Kansas is and has, in total. How quaint, how provincial - the New Yorker that is. For lo and behold, the hinterlands often yield a different hometown product, one that is by all accounts a rarer commodity, and certainly, one that will produce a more satisfying, long-term nourishment for your soul. Jim Seeley is one such product. He is a 'jazz' musician with both skill and soul. That's a rare breed these days. Increasingly, we are subjected to young artists who have great facility on their instruments, as if a premium on virtuosity is a prerequisite in order for the music business to reward you with their meager attention. By those standards, Thelonius Monk would have trouble getting a record deal today
