He asked me questions like :
“Do you know what are standard jazz pieces?” I shook my head
“Have you heard of this song before “Autumn Leaves” I shook my head, I only heard it from Korean drama series, of course I didn’t tell him that. Even that wasn’t the true jazz version
“ Do you know the key people in jazz, like Herbie Hancock etc...” I shook my head
“Do you know who is Courtney Pine? I am in his band” I shook my head
