My Jazz Story

Jazz is pure music without limitations. I started listening jazz in grade school, although I was in a wave band. Later I was the drummer of the school jazz group because I was kicked out off art education in case of bad behaviour during image analysis. Beside all the knowledge of music, jazz is able to catch your heart. When starting playing sax I was fascinated by Ben Webster - that was a woman killing tone, man. During the 80s I was catched by Miles too - an endless story. He kicks me every time and I took his legacy to look forward any time I do musical things. It is a journey without any restrictions - 36 years on that road I do not feel tired.

My House Concert Story

For the rent of the rehearsal room we had to play one concert in a housing area inside the community house. Kids playing in the sand, people having a barbeque and we played free jazz. Great experience, our harp player was really in fear of that audience (90 percent teachers) so he was full of Mary and Jane, drank a big bunch of beer and yeah was found asleep inside one of the private houses.
