Okay, so now I've done it -- I've gone and joined the teeming bazillions who may already have won... erm... who've joined this "live journal" fad.

Hi.

I'll probably mutter from time to time about the books I'm reading. That's something I've been wanting to do. Right now, I'm in the middle of Visions of Jazz: The First Century, by Gary Giddins. It's a bit hard to follow at time, since I'm a self-taught musician and don't know most of the musical terminology he uses. But it's still very interesting, and G iddins is one hell of a writer -- I enjoy his basic "words together" and his evocative descriptions.

More later....la
