(More than just) Jazz Birthday Calendar, March 22: Jorge Ben Jor

My first  year  teaching, I’d come home exhausted, like someone just ran me over with a middle school, fall on the futon, and listen to Jorge Ben’s Greatest Hits over and over until I fell asleep, then wake up in the middle of the night, turn the album back on (slightly lower), and listen to it again while I got ready for the next crazy day. The music that keeps us going, keeps us going.
