See the Pen FCC Coltrane Tribute Feedback/Ideas by Manny Hagman (@mannyhagman) on CodePen.
Ok so feedback wise, since you have a lot of great text and cool things to say, it might be easier to communicate that to the reader by spacing things out a bit. I'm not a designer nor an expert on this, but I've done a little bit of copy editing when I was with Apple and the general practice was no more than 2 or 3 lines per paragraph.
I've also thrown in some suggested HTML semantic elements and wrapped your text with them and used a few bootstrap classes for alignment.
I like your idea of breaking down the text with quotes, so I expanded upon that and made it more dramatic for reader impact.
These are just a few things to think about. You've done a great job getting the basic ideas down and organizing your work Can't wait to see more in the future!
