At a time when Hispanics are the dominant minority in the United States, The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences has decided to eliminate the Latin Jazz category. This list is posted in solidarity with those who demand that the category be reinstated.
I love jazz because next to my kids, it's the love of my life.
I was first exposed to jazz by Joe Rico from a tiny station in Niagara Falls in 1954 when I was 13.
The best show I ever attended was Maynard Ferguson who blew the roof off Massey Hall in the late 50s.
My advice to new listeners is to listen to everything you can and then listen again.
