The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane, as well as more than 75 liner notes and thousands of articles, reviews, press releases, bios, etc. Jeff has been a jazz fan since he was in the single digits and saw a couple of puppets lip-syncing to Oscar Peterson and Clark Terry's "Mumbles" on The Soupy Sales Show.
