I just wonder sometimes how it is that Jazz just took over the world, and became one of the classical developments of the 20th century so effortlessly. It just rose up, part of the liberation of a whole people, with music being so powerful. Maybe it didn't but it sure seems to me that it added life to lives and made music move in new ways. I remember when Satchmo died. Was walking down the street, and saw a newspaper poster headline Satchmo's Dead. I was a kid, just holding the hand of my mom's friend walking down the street on the way home. I knew his music so well then. I love to listen to it now. Miss him, but have the music.
