My Jazz Story
I was exposed to jazz through my son, a drummer who took up jazz in high school so he
could attend a preferred high school. Watching his development and acquiring a basic
knowledge of classic jazz coincided with my re-entry into the world of vinyl collecting, which
only took things further. My son, Judson Branam IV, is entering his senior year in the jazz
performance program at Michigan State University.
