My Jazz Story
Published on: 2016-09-07
I love jazz because it incorporates so many different sounds.
I was first exposed to jazz while watching the movie Ragtime. I fell in love with ragtime jazz.
I met musician John Reid from Calgary, Alberta, who is also a dear friend.
The best show I ever attended was Manhattan Transfer, if you classify that as jazz.
The first jazz record I bought was the Preservation Hall Jazz Band Greatest Hits.
My advice to new listeners is to explore all the different genres of jazz.
