I worked at a great record store while I was in college (a few decades ago) and still owe most of what I know to my former coworker Larry Hollis, Bob Parlocha, and public radio.
I'm a fan. Not the most deeply knowledgeable one, but the love is there.
Faves are Fitzgerald, Holiday, Simone, Sun Ra, Monk, Mose Allison, Kurt Elling, Etta James, Eddie Harris, Getz and Gilberto, Lionel Hampton, O. Coleman, Cal Tjader, Coltrane, Parker ... saw McCoy Tyner in 2007. Third Stream is also great!
