My Jazz Story

Published on: 2019-04-14

I love jazz because it represents freedom. I was first exposed to jazz at Montreal's International Jazz Festival. I met Charles Lloyd in Brussels after an outdoor concert. Listening to him live then talking to him after the show left a strong impression on me. The best show I ever attended was Charles Mingus Big Band - Under the Fez (when the sessions were still happening at that venue in NYC). The first jazz record I bought was Kind of Blue by Miles Davis. My advice to new listeners: listen, listen, find out where live jazz is happening... and listen!
