One of the highlights of visiting New York last year was seeing live jazz. I got it into my head the other night that I've got to be more supportive of local musicians so I found out that Jackie Orszaczky was playing a gig at The Macquarie Hotel which badges itself as "Sydney's Only House Of Funk". It was so inspiring to watch him play with his band. I doubt he makes much money but he is so obviously incredibly passionate about his music. I've got the highest respect for anyone who pursues their dreams - whether it's music, writing, art. It's intoxicating being around such people.
