Joey Calderazzo is a jazz pianist and member here at PW. PM him for his experiences with Lindeblad. I am not sure if he has published them here.

I'm not very sure what "like" has to do with the fine arts, such as classical music. Yes, it can be in there as one of a lot of different personal responses, but why would it matter more than, say, "appreciate", "admire"
