It's herethe first episode of The Jazz Session, a jazz interview podcast hosted by All About Jazz contributor Jason Crane. In this show, Jason interviews tenor saxophonist Grant Stewart. Stewart has been in New York for the past 16 years, since moving there from his native Toronto. He's played with quite a roster of jazz artists, from Curtis Fuller, John Hendricks and Clark Terry to Brad Mehldau, Larry Goldings and Jimmy Cobb. Stewart's new album on Sharp Nine Records is In The Still Of The Night.

I was first exposed to jazz when I saw Dave Brubeck in 1974.
The first jazz record I bought was Bitches Brew by Miles Davis.
