Fascinating, very soulful interview. Your experience, as I'm sure you know, parallels that of many of us in many respects. In particular, your sense (especially early on) of the aura that jazz had, its perhaps inseparable combo of "coolness" and truth value, plus the possibility that one was welcome to participate and to do so as the person one actually was (thus perhaps furthering one's own authentic growth).

Loved it. Not only a superior writer but also an engaging speaker. Great Ronnell Bright segment.
