About Me

When I was taking lab band in junior college, the professor told us that we needed to quit listening to as much rock and start buying more jazz records. Since I was already addicted to buying records, this seemed like an ideal way to legitimize my spending. A lot of time has passed since then. While I never got too involved with actually playing music, I didn't stop buying records. I mean when a teacher tells you to do something, you should do it, right? I even worked at a few record stores while I was going to college. I've been doing book reviews on AAJ for a couple of years now. It's been a great experience. I'm also back in school, working on another degree.
