It's group-oriented music. So you're surrounded by like minds, so to speak. Then just being able to pluck notes out of the air and have it make sense. To be able to express yourself by doing that. It's really fascinating
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.
