“Jazz at this time is still mostly a group effort.”
Ted Gioia, How to Listen to Jazz

“Listening, not jargon, is the path into the heart of music. And if we listen at a deep enough level, we enter into the magic of the song - no degrees or formal credentials required.
[...] [C]areful listening can demystify virtually all of the intricacies and marvels of jazz. [...] [T]he people who first gave us jazz did so without much formal study - and, in some instances, with none at all. But they knew how to listen.”
Ted Gioia, How to Listen to Jazz

“And the two colleagues are still hanging out together: Van Heusen is buried in the Sinatra family plot in Cathedral City, California.”
Ted Gioia, The Jazz Standards: A Guide to the Repertoire
