In a famous story about tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims, he was watching Neil Armstrong's first lunar steps in 1969 and cried out, "Jesus Christ a man walking on the moon, and I'm still playing 'Indiana'!" Fortunately, Sims's stylistic crisis was short lived, and he continued to play jazz standards. Peplowski carries on this tradition, with full awareness of the paradox.
