My Jazz Story

The best show I ever attended was Esbjorn Svensson Trio at IAJE in New York City. Even hearing them with the tired ears that
come with attending a multiple-day jazz conference, the dynamic writing and incendiary performance left an indelible mark on
me. I still can't believe he is gone.
