Joe Knipes

Combining tradition with personal experience in sound

My Jazz Story

Published on: 2018-08-01

I love jazz because it touches the soul. I was first exposed to jazz through PBS, and Billy Taylor on CBS Sunday Morning. I met Herbie Hancock. The first jazz record I bought was Milestones by Miles Davis. My advice to new listeners… Find a recording you like, then look for others featuring each of the musicians on the record.
