I have loved jazz since I was turned on to it at the age of 21 in Houston.

I was first exposed to jazz by Ray Sullenger, Arnett Cobb, Bobby Henschen, and Tom Clarkson.
I have worked with and met so many great musicians since discovering the music of Ella, Oscar, Joe, Sarah, Mel, Carmen, Flora, on and on... lucky me.
The best show I ever attended was Ella at Carnegie Hall.
The first jazz record I bought was Bill Evans and Tony Bennett.
My advice to new listeners is to check out the history of jazz.
