Billy Bean

Billy Bean ran a music store where I grew up- in the deep south. I think I first heard jazz, there.

Billy did a lot of buisness with country&western musicians . I guess cobb county had a lot of musicians. Jazz? At that time it didnt jazz me. I was 10 or younger.

Anyway, all the folk I knew that played, were all drinkers. They’d play in back yards or homes. They played c&w or polka stuff.  They were always fucked up-they looked Haggard N shit. They were all lazy too.

The 50’s had a good/healthy vibe musically; But in myTown I would have  never heard jazz had it not been for Billy Bean’s.
