I love jazz because...It moves me I was first exposed to jazz...as a kid by my parents record collection. I met David Fathead Newman... The best show I ever attended was...Blue Note 7. The first jazz record I bought was...Feels So Good, Mangione, lol. My advice to new listeners...GIVE JAZZ A CHANCE!
