i love that big bands are still finding ways to make it. one of the things that knocks me out about secret society is that they are keeping things alive by moving them along. the big bands that do nothing but covers of the old stuff are missing the point to my thinking.
darcy and his gang seem to understand what me da said when he summed up the essence of jazz in one succint irish accented sentence:
when you do it right, jazz comes from the top of your head and the bottom of your heart at the same time.

Your da was absolutely right, mhb. That's a great way of putting it.
