Everything out of Jerry felt like a spark, hitting me every which-way as a reflection of the truth (and my teacher). I love this quote from Jerry lifted from The Coast today, "Jazz is just a reflection of life….Life is improvised, life is uncertain. It's not solid. It's not permanent," he told the CBC in December 2020. "The art I choose disappears after it's played, it goes off into the ether. I love that."
