A Jazz Rorschach Test
Consider this video a jazz Rorschach test.
Which of the following do you see as you view this area ensemble:
a) Dedicated middle school jazz instructors instilling discipline and art appreciation into youngsters?
b) A bright and rosy future for jazz?
c) Bored teenagers desecrating a Sonny Rollins standard?
d) Confirmation that a stylish hat always looks sharp?
(For the record, I think these kids are pretty good. Additionally, I have no connection to this group. I uncovered this footage by searching for "Doug Talley" at YouTube.)
