A thought triggered to the priceless moments of my Music Professor that taught Classical and Jazz. Just imagine having to write review on going to see #TootieHeath (while the man himself stops the show midway just to acknowledge your OG mentor that you’re hanging with in the audience ..over the top..). My professor made it a point to drive the genius of #FreddieHubbard and the #bebop movement into our subconscious. Naturally, I passed both courses with flying colors. Reflective mood. #mood #jazz #unique74
