My Jazz Story

Published on: 2019-08-16

Grew up at a time when you could see Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington & others on TV. My oldest brother loved Brubeck. At 14 I bought Ellington's "Far East Suite." I was just starting to play then. Added writing about jazz later. Still listening, writing, & playing on occasion.
