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.
