My Jazz Story
Published on: 2017-10-23
I love jazz because, as a music gourmand, it feeds my ears, mind, heart, soul more completely than any other music genre.
I was first exposed to jazz via late-night FM radio programming on KERA in Dallas, circa 1972-78.
I was in music business (retail side) for a couple of decades. I am fortunate to have met many musicians.
Most of them are
very gracious and all too happy to 'talk shop' if one proves to be a thoughtful and respectful listener/fan.
The best show I ever attended was Weather Report at Jones Hall in Houston, TX, 1980. A mind-blower.
My advice to new listeners - we are fortunate in this day and age to have so many great music resources available to us on the
internet. Use them to expand your horizons!
