My Jazz Story
One time, at band camp...
I grew up learning piano and started playing trombone in Jr. High (Middle School
equivalent). I played all styles of music including jazz. My first gig was when I was in Jr.
High and played my first paid job with others at a synagog. It was fun!!!
I also had the joy of visiting many jazz venues throughout California including Balboa
Peninsula and San Francisco. It wasn't until I hit the San Francisco area that I watched a
movie documentary about Thelonious Monk (whom I applaud his genius).
I can truly say, there is nothing quite like a jam session with others who love jazz!
