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 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.
