Wallmann is great

30 years ago, in a liberal college town like Madison, I tried to introduce a gay person to the local jazz scene, and was told that the consensus of the jazzers was that they were uncomfortable playing with a gay person. Sure enough, while quite talented, he was made to feel quite uncomfortable and left several months later. I was shocked that artists could possibly feel that way, but they felt that jazz was the domain of the straight male. I am extremely gratified that Johannes is being judged on his (considerable) musicianship and his leadership and not by his sexuality.
