My Jazz Story
Published on: 2019-04-21
I love jazz because it`s the speechless voice of the sound of the African American.
I was first exposed to jazz as a child growing up in NYC and listening to the jazz radio (WLIB with Billy Taylor).
I met Max, Roy, Art, Philly, Elvin, Mingus, Scoby, Louis, Cal, Billy, Sam, Betty & Red.
The best show I ever attended was. Art Blakey at the Top of the Gate.
The first jazz record I bought was Art Blakey & the Jazz Messenger with Bobby Timmons playing "Moanin".
My advice to new listeners: the healing power of jazz recordings is on vinyl!
Mexico will be the next Home of Jazz!
