…but I know jazz!
No, wait. That can’t be right.
I know NOTHING about music, musical terms, musical instruments, or history of music. I can’t carry a tune and I can’t clap along with music, having absolutely no sense of rhythm.* So I’m not going to even attempt to describe the FANTASTIC jazz we had here on Wednesday night. The Hot Club of San Francisco plays gypsy jazz from early twentieth-century Europe. Three guitars, a violin, and a bass. Check out the mp3s on their website; I recommend listening to "Don’t Panic." You’ve first got to turn off the default music at the bottom of the right side-bar.
*Actually, I have a negative sense of rhythm. On a dance floor, I suck rhythm from the people around (or maybe I just bump into them a lot). I am a rhythm black hole.
