My appreciation and love of jazz come from living in the city of its
is such a part of the New Orleans culture and experience that we
it beyond the norm - it defines us, our past, our present and our
future. I recall
being introduced to this uniquely American art form on Sunday
home, hearing the music of Armstrong, Ellington, and Basie. Ours was
musical household as my mother, father and siblings appreciated all
musical and it was not unusual to hear the sounds of Gershwin
those of Stan Kenton.
For me, music is life and Jazz is the pulse.
