My Jazz Story

Published on: 2016-07-11

Growing up in these technological times, I had the traditional preconceived notion that jazz was all elevator music with slick production...needless to say, I was terribly wrong. I was first exposed to Coltrane's A Love Supreme at age 13 and was taken aback by the pure potency of the music; it was raw, unforgiving, and unrestrained. Since then, I've been learning and exploring the ins and outs of the jazz world and have made it my goal to expose fellow young people to this massive catalog of unique music that's waiting to be discovered.
