I was just making a point that all listeners aren't pretentious. This man truly understood and knew what he was talking about. He never said anything that wasn't a fact. He never criticized, He just gave insight! He would travel to New Orleans frequently with his job. He saw many of the greats play many times. He was a true gracious fan of the music. He just didn't play!
