My Jazz Story
Jazz was the "Top 40" music of America until the early to mid-60s. There
was a reason for that. It's the ultimate form of democracy in action.
All of the musicians doing their own thing but listening closely and
interacting/complimenting each other simultaneously. Not everyone can
play a musical instrument or belt out a tune in a sophisticated classy
manner. These days, everyone wants to be a "musician" hence the decline
and fall of jazz's visibility. For those of us that are more cerebral
and conscious of our own limitations we can revel and marvel at the
musicians that present their craft.
