1. dope...Nnenna is a great teacher too. attended a few of her technique & biz workshops. from career nurse to jazz nova...hope for me yet?
2. how interesting is it that i post about max roach/abbey lincoln freedom suite right after this? didnt do it consciously but cool how it connects the historical/musical dots
