I worked a West LA classically oriented record store that lost its concise and definitve jazz
section's buyer. Since the opera obsessives weren't interested, the job fell to me. My jazz
experience amounted to a couple of Miles' albums from different periods, so I took $50 to
the original Rhino Records and bought $1, $2, $3 LP's by names I'd heard mentioned,
beginning a jazz education that continues today.
