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.
I actually agree with her about Brubeck.:)
