My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it IS the sound of freedom! I was first exposed to jazz via my father's 78's of Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and Pine Top Smith. The best show I ever attended was John Coltrane with a double Quartet at the Village Vanguard, 1966! The first jazz record I bought was Miles' "Ascenseur pour l'├ęchafaud" sound track from the French movie of the same name. My advice to new listeners: open your ears!
