Man, early February is a jazz fan's heaven here in Portland, OR. For anyone in the area, check out the Portland Jazz Festival. There are going to be names like Wayne Shorter, Regina Carter, Poncho Sanchez, Gary Burton and many more. The concert I'm looking forward to the most? A Ray Brown Tribute concert featuring John Clayton, Benny Green, and Jeff Hamilton.

Man! It's like sweet, succulent, jazz confectionery sugar sprinkled down upon us by an angelic, heavenly host. If you're from the early 1900s though, I suppose it could also be considered aural cocaine in its purest form thrown down upon us by a damned, Almighty, demonic jazz fiend from the fiery pits of eternal damnation, longing for us to take a taste so that we may join him, forever surrounded by hell and brimstone, in order to placate his unending need to devour human souls. Oh well, what's good music without selling your soul once every lifetime or so...
