Great Entertainment

I'm admittedly a jazz freak! Ever since I first heard this music pouring out of one of the NYC bars in the '50s, I fell in love with jazz. This was solidified by living in Chicago during the '60s and hearing "The Chicago Jazz Sound". Last time I was in Chicago, 1985, as I was moving to California, I went to the Playboy Jazz Festival. My old love was recently kindled by meeting two of jazz's Greats: Glen Zottola and Ira Nepus.
