My Jazz Story
My route to discovering jazz is probably typical, starting with Weather Report and other fusion bands in the 70's and seeing where references took me. My favorite jazz instrument is piano, either solo or in classic trios and quartets. I like space in music, not a lot of clutter. Its good that Jazz is in such a healthy place now, with a growing and younger audience.
