Diz

I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s listening to rock and roll. It wasn’t until I was in college that jazz found me and although I still love rock from that time, jazz and blues are my musical passion. Unfortunately, I had nowhere near the talent to perform jazz or blues (or rock for that matter, try as I might.) I still occasionally play for my own embarrassment, but mostly I turned my hand to other hobbies, birding being the current passion.

The reason I mention this was this Bullock’s Oriole I came across this morning.  He has musical talent that I can only dream of and more attitude and style that I, as an old guy (or even as the young dude I once was) could ever muster. Slick do, soul patch, sharp threads, and cheap sunglasses. BTW, Diz, for you younger folks, is Dizzy Gillespie, a trumpeter that was instrumental, along with Charlie “Bird” Parker and many others in the development of Bebop.
