Dear Dan,
I rarely write reviews and have never ever claimed to be a 'jazz  
Probably for the very reasons your questions will raise.
However, I have been a jazz record collector/discographer, researcher  
and writer/historian since about 1949.
I am also a seasoned jazz LP and CD album note writer, and occasional  
producer, for numerous record companies from the late 1950s.
Sorry, but I wouldn't even dare to buy into this one.
Very kind regards,
