My Jazz Story
I was first exposed to jazz when I lived in Berlin in 1988. There was a cafe' in Kantstrasse where a saxophone player performed solo in the daytime.
used to go to the cafe' to do my German language homework but I ended up listening to the music instead. That was the beginning of a love story
that continues to this day.
