My Jazz Story

Published on: 2017-10-23

I love jazz because, as a music gourmand, it feeds my ears, mind, heart, soul more completely than any other music genre. I was first exposed to jazz via late-night FM radio programming on KERA in Dallas, circa 1972-78. I was in music business (retail side) for a couple of decades. I am fortunate to have met many musicians. Most of them are very gracious and all too happy to 'talk shop' if one proves to be a thoughtful and respectful listener/fan. The best show I ever attended was Weather Report at Jones Hall in Houston, TX, 1980. A mind-blower. My advice to new listeners - we are fortunate in this day and age to have so many great music resources available to us on the internet. Use them to expand your horizons!
