Jazz & Drinks
The only thing I love more than a good cocktail is a good jazz record. Come to think of it, the two aren't all that different! They both deserve to be savored. They're simultaneously temporal and infinite. The joy in either is the interplay between discrete elements, resulting in something magical.
