My Jazz Story

Published on: 2019-04-07

I was first exposed to Jazz in middle school, when my English teacher played Dave Brubeck in class. My knowledge further expanded later in high school, thru the record collection of a friend's older brother. This is where I learned to love John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Gillespie and so many other greats. So started a lifelong love of Jazz that continues today. Although I never got to see Coltrane and Monk live, I have had the great pleasure of seeing Miles and Dizzy, along with so many others (Dexter Gordon, Charlie Mingus, Freddie Hubbard, Frank Morgan, Joe Henderson, Sarah Vaughan and on and on).
