My Jazz Story
Published on: 2017-02-19
I love jazz because it's spontaneous composition and expression beyond words.
I was first exposed to jazz as a child to Frank Sinatra & Sarah Vaughn.
I have played with Big Joe Turner, Art Blakey, Santana, Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, Baby
Gramps, The Funk Brothers, Sam Shepard, Benny Green, Carlos Santana, Julian Priester, Eddie
Henderson, Sonny Simmons, Perry Robinson, Amy Denio, Michael White, Hadley Caliman, Jeff
Johnson, Jay Thomas, Mike Bisio, Bert Wilson and the Ivar’s Clams.
The best show I ever attended was Judy Garland Dallas 1958.
The first jazz record I owned was "Monk's Music".
