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.
