My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it has a calming effect as well as the ability to excite and allow you to create your own scenario. I was first exposed to jazz listening to Ella Fitzgerald I met Count Basie, it was like meeting music royalty. The best show I ever attended was Count Basie and Lionel Hampton. The first jazz record I bought was in 1972 Sadao Watanabe. My advice to new listeners just relax and let the music take your mind.
