I heard Dexter Gordon’s Tanya for the first time 23 years ago. I was hooked.
I’m hearing it again as I write this post, but this time on my just-arrived Monoprice headphones. Tanya never sounded this good. I wish there were audio enthusiasts around me with whom I could share my enthusiasm. Dad?
My headphones just arrived from Amazon. Arihant heard some jazz and classical. Music has a strange hold on him.
