Default Secret History of Jazz & Freemasonry

I've been meaning to post this for a while, but wasn't sure which forum would be most appropriate.

As an avid fan of jazz music (including, but not limited to Sun Ra) and a person with a family history steeped in Freemasonry (both of my grandfathers were past grand [aka "worshipful"] masters of their local masonic lodge), I found the following recent article in The Guardian very informative and fascinating. I had never thought of the connection between jazz and the masonic lodge before, but it makes sense. Thought many of you here would enjoy the read as well:

Namaste from the Midwest,
Stephanie
