Hackers destroyed my old site

May 16, 2018

Unfortunately, the site I've had for 8 years was destroyed by hackers to the point that my Web host refused entry. "Forbidden," it said.

He only lived to be 28, but the legendary cornet player made a lasting impact on the jazz art form, especially in the way soloists improvise and create their own separate statements within the band.
