We as Indians have lost a lot of land. One thing that we still have is our music, and our music should never die...When I try to put my native music into jazz, I use rhythm, melody, and add harmony to it.
I love jazz because it swings.
I was first exposed to jazz in Houston.
I met Joe LoCascio and Bob Henschen.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Martino.
The first jazz record I bought was Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
My advice to new listeners is to relax on 2 and 4 beats.
