YogaDawg's Jazz Saturdays - Jazz Satire

When I ran across Bill Bill Anschell's jazz humor piece, "Jazz Jam Sessions: A First-Timer's Guide", I thought it was the funniest thing I read in a long time. With jazz having such a serious aura about it, it was great to see someone poking fun at it and breaking through the walls of all that seriousness.

This is Bill’s follow up piece titled “Careers in Jazz”. If you ever wanted to know what you are in for as a jazz musician, read this. It is one of the most brilliant pieces of satire that I have come across.
