My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... when it's played right, it has personality. I was first exposed to jazz... from that dude Jerome. I met [musician name]... Greg Amanatides The best show I ever attended was... The Rolling Stones, 9/17/05 -or- Gov't Mule, 12/31/07 -or- Robert Glasper Experiment, 10/7/12 The first jazz record I bought was... Lester Young and Teddy Wilson, Pres and Teddy My advice to new listeners... diversify yo' bonds. Or whatever else you have in mind... Gimme a J-A-Z-Z, what's that spell? ("Now that's a f**kin' concert").
