That's me in 1984...Doing the same thing I enjoy most today...Listening to Music. From childhood, I was exposed to South Texas honky-tonks, my great-grand mother's Bob Wills and Ernest Tubb records, and the ever-vibrant, Live Music scene of Austin. I love most all music and don't care much for how people want to "classify" it. For me, Music has ALWAYS been dangerous, provocative, and the most powerful healing force on Earth. I love Jazz because it's complex, defiant, and improvisational. I love most Roots music for it's purity and soul (and that's Reggae, Folk, R&B, Rock...whatever you wanna call it). I love Hip-Hop for it's unique cultural language that is infused into it's Jazz & R&B roots. (Even Louis Armstrong was a rapper). What I dislike is music marketed to the masses that shortcuts quality and complexity, programmed drumbeats, auto-tuned voices, etc.
