Themost wonderful assault you can have upon your ears is jazz

My Jazz Story

I became interested in jazz after watching "The Gene Krupa Story" with a friend of mine that is a major jazz enthusiast. I then heard a quote by Norman Granz where he spoke of jazz being a metaphor for democracy. I was hooked after that. I love the music, the musicians, but most of all the ideas projected from the music. It's open to interpretation and that's a really cool thing.
