Interesting interview. Sanda and I visited with a couple who live South of Paris last summer. The fellow was a fan of “jazz classique”. Could not connect with modern jazz. He loved Louis Armstrong. When we got home I sent him a recording by Sidney Bechet and he gushed about it. BTW, I could never understand why one chooses the trombone. All I can think of when I see one are marching bands.
Great interview. Chris’ “explanation” of jazz in a couple of sentences very similar to boyfriend #1 to the woman in La La Land. I understand the explanations . . . but it still doesn’t get me . . .
Wonderful interview. What is not to like about Chris? He is one of the nicest people around…but also very insightful. Last time he was at the Bach, he made a great parallel between the relationship between me and my dad and he and his dad.
Love the location of the still photo too!
