Jazz caught my ear from the time I was 9. One day I went used record store, I ran across a Charlie Parker LP that, among other songs, included White Christmas. I had never heard of Groovin’ High or A Night In Tunisia but at least I had heard White Christmas somewhere! I played the album two or three times each day for a week. It took about five days for my ears to be opened and then I became quite anxious to learn about all eras of jazz. Within two months I was into John Coltrane's 1966 explorations with Pharoah Sanders and Miles Davis' Live/Evil, quite a jump from Pete Fountain. My desire to own and hearevery jazz recording is still my goal. I listen to a lot of brazailian jazz too.
