My Jazz Story

I love jazz because people of every age and nationality come together to express themselves. I was first exposed to jazz at the age of eight. I met -- and worked with -- most all of them. The best show I ever attended was Philadelphia Jazz Festival, 1960. The first jazz record I bought was Benny Goodman Carnegie Hall Concert. My advice to new listeners: Listen to everyone, from Pops to Trane and beyond.
