So this morning I finally gave into the JAZZ.FM fundraiser campaign. It really is one of the last independent (listener supported) media outlets that exists today on such a scale. I had this sudden premonition that becoming a JAZZ.FM member will somehow better my life.
I don’t know if it’s because of the free JAZZ lapel pin I’ll get, the announcement of my name on the air (it took them 3 times to get it right) or the placebo effect but… I feel like a new man already.
They also announced my request to hear some Alister Spence on air, whom I watched front row center at last years Montreal Jazz Festival (Already anxious to get there this year). They were the most impressive, experimental, yet conventional jazz trio I’ve ever heard. I was a trip.

Brett Long informed me that the first ‘test shoot’ for American Perfection will take place Easter weekend (I’m Camera Boy #1). I really don’t know what the hell to expect out of this, which is why I’m going to do it.
