This Is Why I Do It

Sometimes I wonder why I do what I do. The constant promotion of jazz, even from a forthright perspective, often seems like a fool's errand. When I'm tempted to leave this neglected corner of the musical universe, I find new inspiration by turning to vintage Basie. Listening to these sides reminds me of my mandate to advocate for the forgotten music of the past and the overlooked music of the present.
