The grocery store where I shop usually has a piano player playing schmaltzy pop-jazz arrangements out of a book. Yesterday the guy was playing Peace by Horace Silver - wasn't the best I've heard it, but a very welcome change.Nice list.
Who are your favorite jazz guitarists? And other jazz musicians?
I like acoustic guitars a lot. The fact that all of the sound is coming from the wood makes them more interesting to me than electric guitars, I have to say. With electric guitars, the sound comes from so many elements in the chain of amplification that the guitar tends to get lost. I guess I am reacting to the minimalism of acoustic guitars. I like electric guitars, too.
I think the term "mode" can be descriptive or prescriptive. Prescriptive - this would be the explicit guidance to play a certain mode over a certain chord or harmony. People tend to think of this as adding flavor or creating a certain mood. You can also have chord progressions within a certain modal "key" by pulling out some stacked thirds and coming back to some tonic every so often. I think this is representative of certain "virtuoso" guitarists such as Satriani, the...
I'm having trouble deciding if I'm looking at the suit at its best: a) Is the suit all the way on? Did you shake yourself out a bit to make sure it's all settled where it should be? b) Are your pants pulled up all the way? c) Is the camera angle correct? Looks a bit low to me.

Help me connect the dots - explain how investing in good people somehow ignores the crash.
The return on going from mid 500s to mid 600s has to be astronomical. I'd find some way to figure out how many more questions you'd need to get right/what incremental concepts you need to master and then decide if retaking is worth it. Also try Manhattan GMAT - really solid self study books.Finally, I don't know your whole situation, but 60 hrs a week leaves you with plenty of time to study. Unless you're caring for a sick relative or something, i wouldn't let this get in...
IB can be a good stepping stone to PE: 1 - you get to know a lot of PE firms on any given deal, especially the seller. In diligence with buyers, you also have a chance to present yourself well. Analysts get hired this way, but I've seen associates do it too. 2 - you get a lot of reps with valuation models, since you're doing DCF/LBO/Acc-Dil for every pitch. I don't think buyside has the same frequency. You also build projection models on live deals. 2a - knowing how...
