More musical chairs followed as Kjekstad, Garnett and Strigalev reunited on a charged interpretation of tenor player Sonny Rollins's "Doxy," with some rousing individual and collective playing. The jam session ended at 2.30 am, signaling the end of another vibrant night of jazzaround the 19 thousandthat Ronnie Scott's. As entertaining as the jamming undoubtedly was, the subtler, though no less vibrant dynamics of Frode Kjekstad's Italian Job Trio with Garnett is what will linger most in the mind.
I love jazz because it has allowed me to find my own voice.
I was first exposed to jazz as a child through my parents.
The best show I ever attended was Cassandra Wilson and Dianne Reeves. AMAZING!!!
The first jazz record I bought was Carmen Sings Monk.
My advice to new listeners is to listen with your heart and feel with your experiences.
