My Jazz Story
I love jazz because it has taught me more about the music in its various forms and the musicians who composed and perform it.
I was first exposed to jazz by my first guitar teacher and later by 'Sugarfoot' the guitarist for the Ohio Players.
The best show I ever attended was a George Benson concert at Universal City/LA.
My advice to new listeners is listen closely to the rhythms, melodies and what the artist is trying to deliver!
