“Unfortunately, over time,” Todd explains,“critics and certain musicians in the jazz community have put barriers and borders as to what really is jazz. This is ironic considering that pioneers Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong were not very happy with the classification of music genres. Open up your ears, free your mind, and let everything else follow.”
