Some of the giants who came to pay their respects to 'the boss' -- specifically those with trumpet in hand -- are monsters as well, and their earsplitting high notes ricocheted and reverberated through and around the California Ballroom
I love jazz because transports me to another reality.
I was first exposed to jazz a concert on the lake many years ago.
I met many musicians at various international jazz festivals.
The best show I ever attended was Jazzascona in Suisse.
The first jazz record I bought was Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
My advice to new listeners is listen to music with an open mind.
Listen, think and share jazz everywhere.
