John LaPorta Feature - Down Beat 1958

Reading this feature on John LaPorta from the October 16, 1958 issue of Down Beat led me to listening to his album Conceptions. There's some interesting music on it and I know a couple of people in particular that will really get into the playing and writing. The article delves a little into his background, education, some of his musical philosophy and his own teaching.
