I'm a fan (and you should be too) because...jazz is America's music. I, too, loved the 60's, but as this new stuff they call rock has more and more washed up I started looking for something else. Recently, unfortunately, my dad died and while going through his things I discovered his jazz cd's and among them Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue". I instantly new I had found a real sound that made me feel about music the way I used to before about music.
I hope to tap into much more of his music, but just a little at a time. This will enable me to enjoy each one as, I am sure Miles intended, to the fullest.
