    I'll put this here instead of filling up the forum with my diatribe on what constitutes "jazz" nowdays that will inevitably lead to taking any discussion away from your album there 🤣

    Great stuff! I can't say how refreshing it was to hear something not scripted into obvlivion or just a rehashing of some old standards and calling that jazz............ I'll never understand how jazz "standards" came about either, and how it was ever allowed to be put in a box, but I digress. I know why, I'll just never understand it. Anyway, really enjoying that album. I'm about halfway through now. Great stuff, enjoying everything about it.
