Reds, Whites & Blues


Five Similarities Between Jazz and Wine:

1)   For some reason, both are kept in dark, dank rooms underground.

2)   It’s often best to look for a vintage for both jazz and wine.

3)   No matter how many kinds you’ve tried of either, there will always be more to discover.

4)   To a trained observer, jazz and wine will give important insight to the culture from which it came.

5)   Both bring you into a state of heightened consciousness.

Five Differences Between Jazz and Wine:

1)   Jazz is an American artform that has spread to Europe; wine-making is a European artform that has spread to America (and elsewhere).

2)   You want your jazz dirty and gritty! But keep the wine clean and pure.

3)   Jazz does the blues; wine does the reds and the whites.

4)   Jazz thinks the “Days of Wine and Roses” is a heartbreaking song. Actual days of wine and roses are amazing!

5)   You definitely want to smell your wine before drinking; please don’t smell your local jazz musician.
