My Jazz Story
Published on: 2019-03-22
I love jazz because as it is such an interesting style of music which involves improvisation, solos, the interaction between musicians.
I was first exposed to jazz in 2005 while taking double bass lessons with my teacher.
I met many professional jazz players especially my teacher and idol Mr. Ron Carter.
The best show I ever attended was Ron Carter’s Quartet at Birdland in New York City.
The first jazz record I bought was Kind of Blue by Miles Davis.
My advice to new listeners listen to as much jazz as possible from the early years on.
