    This is one of the best conversations that I’ve heard about music — ever. I don’t agree with everything that Nicholas had to say, but he definitely made me think.

    If I were teaching music, I’d assign it to my students. Deserves to be listened to by anyone who cares about jazz. Or about any form of music. Or about life.

    It’s actually motivated me to make a donation for the first time.

    Great work, Jason.
