My Jazz Story

I love jazz because of how smooth, subtle, romantic and emotional it can be. Jazz allows me to feel emotions I was afraid to feel before. I was first exposed to jazz at age 15 listening to Kenny G, then at age 21 with Boney James and Dave Koz. I met these musicians: Kurt Elling, Brian Culbertson, Joe Bagale, Sachal Vasandani, Spencer Day, Steve Tyrell, Warren Hill, Peter White, Brian Bromberg, Chris Botti & Euge Groove to name a few. For me, the best show I ever attended was Sachal Vasandani at Yoshi's in 2011. His voice is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard and I'm extremely picky about singers. Some of the musicians I haven't seen live or have met, but want to are: Chris Standring, Tony DeSare, Matt Belsante, Steven Santoro & Chris Geith to name a few. I'm a quiet soul who also writes poems and stories as a hobby and my favorite TV shows are: White Collar, Castle, Suits, Perception & Doctor Who.
