clever clever jazz

Hon JON FORD: […] I was brought up with classical music, so the way I rebelled—it may not sound very rebellious—was to spend a good amount of time playing jazz. I even toyed with punk rock. I had to give away punk rock because my hair was never long enough; I could never quite get the spikes in my hair. To my parents, I was a radical. When I grew older and had children of my own, I found that when they reached that age, their rebellious nature was expressed through grunge music and some very strange demonic sounds. I am sure that my father thought it sounded like demons when I played jazz!

Hon Ed Dermer: You didn’t bring your saxophone along?

Hon JON FORD: No, I did not.
