My Jazz Story

I love jazz gives me an emotional kick! I was first exposed to jazz...when I bought my first videorec. and heard/saw a video from Lee Ritenour: live at the record Plant! Great job of the salesman! I met [musician name]...Poogie Bell, Oleta Adams, Joshua Redman, Dwight Trible, Cody Chestnutt. The best show I ever attended was...Christian Scott & Troy Andrews at North Sea Jazz 2012, Al Jarreau & Metropole Orchestra in 2009, and more..I`m very wide angled at music and in life. The first jazz record I bought was...actually a video from Lee Ritenour: live from the record plant! And later Bob James, Joe Zawinul live, and more... but I mostly recorded live concerts from Radio to Minidisc. My advice to new listeners...the fact that your listening is already good because it says something about your personality! It`s good to listen to any kind of music: there`s allways quality and intensely made music in every genre!
