"I just hope there are no injuries." Jazz pianist Jason Moran talks about combining music, skateboarding. @SFJAZZ,

OK, we’ll bite—what on earth does skateboarding have to do with jazz? Both are subcultures with their own lingo and style sensibility. and if you think about how skating developed—in empty pools and open areas, and then on ramps and rails and stairs—and the obstacles that you navigate, there’s a similarity to jazz there as well. Maybe the biggest overlap is how someone who does it develops. A jazz musician will listen to Coltrane or whomever and then learn their language. Skaters watch and learn the same way. My older brother and I skated when we vacationed in San Francisco as kids. We saw pros and kids who were just learning, skating together, and it was like a jazz jam session.
