Hey, what’s up? It’s Brent!

So today, I’m gonna be surfing YouTube to find some videos of people who are making fun of jazz. or attempting to play jazz. After all, I’m a professional jazz musician who makes his living off of performing and teaching jazz, so I should probably be a little bit more in touch with what’s going on out there.
