My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-08-05

I love jazz because I love harmony, nice chord changes, and melodic soloing. My first jazz memory was seeing Dizzy Gillespie on television when I was 5 years old. I met Tal Farlow in Philadelphia in 1984. The best show I ever attended was a concert near Seattle by Boulou and Elios Ferre guitar duo at the 2004 Django Festival NW. The first jazz record I bought was Light As A Feather by Chick Corea. My advice to new listeners... listen until you like it. :-)
