About Me

Discovered at an early age to be a musical non-prodigy, I have settled for trying to listen intelligently. Early in high school I bought three LPs, in one trip to Tower Records: A Love Supreme, Kind of Blue, and a Billie Holiday collection called Lady Day (Teddy Wilson stuff from the 30s). That was all it took.
