My Jazz Story

Published on: 2019-01-23

I love jazz because it is the most diverse music genre. I was first exposed to jazz a long time ago. The best show I ever attended was Henry Threadgill's very very Circus at SJU jazzpodium in Utrecht. The first jazz record I bought was Coleman Hawkins Big Band live at The Savoy Ballroom 1940. My advice to new listeners is to attend as many concerts you can even though you may not know the musicians who are playing.
