My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it gives me goosebumps. I was first exposed to jazz when I bought my very first recording was Mahavishnu Orchestra's BNAE (but is it jazz?) I met Bill Laswell in 2008. The best show I ever attended was Nitin Sawhney at the Royal Albert Hall in London. My advice to new listeners... listen carefully.
