My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it’s music of the soul. I was first exposed to jazz by my dad, as a youngster growing up in Detroit. I was exposed to all types of music growing up but jazz has always been my favorite. In the last 2 years, I’ve been able to embrace my love for jazz by attending the Detroit JazzFest - significant because I’ve lived in GA for almost 25 years but I’ve been intentional about coming home to the Jazz Fest. I met Kirk Whalum in the 90’s and he was one of the most down to earth talents I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I still have the CD HE autographed for me after one of his concerts in Detroit. I also met the late Joe Sample and he was very gracious. I’m excited about interacting g with this site - was turned on to it by a dear friend who sent me a review of Joey Alexander’s new album - Continuance.
