My Jazz Story

I am a (really) late bloomer; I discovered jazz in 2005 in my early forties but it talked to me so much and so strongly that I soon became an amateur self-taught reedman playing Bb clarinet (since 2007) and saxophones--tenor (since 2009), soprano (since 2010), and baritone (since 2011), C-melody sax (since 2012), and bass clarinet (since April 2013). Please feel free to get in touch with me if you are also a reed player--I am always looking forward to learn from and discuss with more experienced cats...
