Who are your favorite jazz artists? (It's ok if you don't know.)

Too many to mention. A few: Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Sonny Rollins, Gil Evans, Clifford Brown, Ben Webster, Charlie Parker, Art Tatum, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Lester Young

What are your favorite sub-genres of jazz? (It's ok to say you are not sure)

Everything EXCEPT smooth jazz and fusion

Have you been to any historic, important or otherwise memorable shows that you'd like to share?

Saw Mingus and Rahsaan Roland Kirk on two different nights at the Village Vanguard back in '74 or '75 back when I was a senior in High School. Amazing! There's been so much great music I've either seen since then that I can't specify any more

We hold tables for the exact number of people RSVPed. Can you commit to keeping your RSVP up to date so we don't end up holding unused seats? (it puts us in a bad position with venues who don't welcome us back)

Yes.

Introduction
