Re: ...for the jazz cats ...
Speaking to the Jazz Cats from the Department of My Wife Really Loves Me.... For Christmas, she got us tickets to see the Charleston Jazz Orchestra do a night of Coltrane.
She must really love me because she knows I am a Jazz Cat, not a player yet but a lover of. To her, Parker, Coltrane and especially Miles sounds like alcoholics tuning up. She once commented that Dave Brubeck sounded like a lounge piano player and she could envision a piano and a brandy snifter full of 1 dollar bills. She really does not get, like, understand, enjoy Jazz. But to each their own. So to buy a pair of tickets to a night of Coltrane would be like my buying her tickets to a taping of Say Yes to the Dress.
