You know, in my humble experience, it's good to appreciate what is going on
around you so you can contextualize how jazz is emerging in the context of
the world around it.  I thought the article spoke volumes on its own merit.

It kills me to think some people just want to have this singular focus and
pretend like nothing influences jazz.  Life influences jazz. Other music,
musicians, and stories influence jazz. The media influences jazz.
Therefore, one could argue, that the information given in its context, has
its place and value.

PS.   I worked hard in the past to create passive income so I could have
lots of time on my hands! and Wow! I love that!  You should try it some
time!  It's fabulous to work because you "choose to work" not because you
"have to work".
