Fully steeped as I am in two guitars, bass, and drums, I keep listening, learning and thankful the jazz steels my spine. A quick thank you to my patient editors here at All About Jazz and a special thank you to all the musicians who have contacted me from around the world. Let's not stop creating. It's our only defense to the soul gripping chaos that passes these days as living.
