My Jazz Story

I love jazz because I believe in the beauty of improvisation I was first exposed to jazz in high school, as part of the jazz band I met John Scofield The best show I ever attended was John McLaughlin with the Free Spirits The first jazz record I bought was Pat Metheny Works My advice to new listeners open your mind, completely disregard what you hear on the radio and consider what the music and improvisation makes you feel.
