My Jazz Story
I love jazz because of the creativity and thoughtfulness of the genre.
I was first exposed to jazz in my early teens.
I met Dave Brubeck, Mundekll Lowe, Herb Ellis, Charlie and Joe Byrd.
The first jazz record I bought was Wes Montgomery "So Much Guitar"
My advice to new listeners..explore as many artists as you can.
