Elzar, and list

Its is my firm belief from personal experience that it is exposure. I have 
my music friends, and my school friends. The music ones love jazz, and are 
eager to give it a try, while the school ones, if asked, would probably say 
"Isnt it that c**p that my grandfather used to listen to".. Sadly the school 
friends outnumber the music ones by far.

   BUT, I invited some school friends along to a Dixieland Jazz band gig, 
the other night. And they were all absolutly wowed by the improv, the scat 
vocals, and basically the amazing sound that the players could achieve. And 
it was only yesterday when I was over at the house of one of the rock 
guitarists that attended. I picked up something on his desk, and underneath 
it was a brand new "Jazz for Guitar" book. lol.

  From this and other small happenings, I really think they need to see it 
live and in their face. Recordings are great for those who can instantly 
appreciate the sound, but alot of these people had never seen a clarinet. I 
think hearing a talented dixieland band live is a good step towards boosting
