Before Databoy (10 years old this year). Before Cyber Soul. I studied music at Metropolitan State College (now University) of Denver. And today, I ran into one of the professors of Metro: Walter Barr. When I was a kid, he taught the hottest Jazz Band in any high school, and lived one neighborhood over from mine. When I went to Metro, he joined the faculty before going on to head the Department of Music after I graduated. I ran into him at the store while I was with Kristine Shafer—who also went to Metro, and Walter Barr knew her, of course.
