In news that has shocked literally no one, a local fedora-wearing man has revealed to The Advocate that he actually enjoys listening to jazz music.
Quentin Gilmore, a 40-year-old miniature train specialist, made the confession while sipping a piccolo at a French Quarter café.
“You wouldn’t think it, but I love jazz”
“It just speaks to me”
“skeep-beep de bop-bop beep bop bo-dope” he scattered with his eyes closed.
Jazz is American music developed especially from the blues and is characterised by propulsive syncopated rhythms, polyphonic ensemble playing, varying degrees of improvisation, and often deliberate distortions of pitch and timbre.
As for when he started wearing a fedora, Quentin explains it was when he started to lose his hair.
“I started balding pretty early on, I think I was about 22?”
“The fedora just seemed like the right fit, I haven’t really taken it off since!”
