“If you have to ask what jazz is, you’ll never know.” ―
Hat tip this Saturday morn, to an individual who has they’re own wonderful website, who is a regular reader of the tripe on this website, but who offers the following gem of a jazz masterpiece, that they added their heavenly musical gifts to, many years ago.
What a masterpiece!
Thank you, Sojourner!
