This music we like so much owes a great debt to the jazzmen like Monk, Cotrane, Miles, Parker et al. I can't think of any genre of music like jazz where the absolute greatest musicians perfected the art of improvisation. These guys totally converse musically. I wish everyone who likes Furthur could appreciate this art, opens up a whole 'nother world of appreciation.

Chimenti has good jazz chops. It would be real interesting to see him playing with a quartet..bass, drums, sax or trumpet and piano. He's certainly gave me cheshire grins with some of his passages, and the way he steps things up quite a bit.

I thought this was going to be a thread about bourbon, single malts, and Irish whiskey.

I wish I would have come up with selling whiskey stones/rocks. Similar principle to using rocks out of the fire to keep your bed warm in the winter, but out of the freezer in this instance.

Knob creek, Glenkinchie and Bushmill's are all great to enjoy alongside some be bop masters at work.

Everything out of the Beam family tastes like kerosene. There's something consistent and unique in their process that disagrees with my palate. White, the blasphemous flavoreds, Black, Knob, Booker's, Basil Hayden, Baker's, and all the others with various labels coming out of their buildings. There are too many other quality bourbons for me to care what it is, but it is. It's strange how it is across their product board. No other distiller is like that for me.

I don't have a huge preference in the Irish category. I like some more than others, but the differences are usually small. Makes it easy. More of a Jameson than a Bushmills, but they're both unrefined in their own ways. Huge leap between Jameson and Jameson 1780, and for the $5, it is more than worth it.

As for single malts, I'm an Islay person. I like smokey flavors. I like it in my black tea, in my latakia tobacco, and in the peat they use for Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Caol Ila, etc. I like scotches of all kinds, but if I have my pick, it would usually be an Islay.
