My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it understands me. It knows just what I need and when I need it. The same song can tell a 1,000 stories. I met and hung out with Kurt Elling early this year before one of his Bay Area shows. Kurt is one of the best vocalists on the planet and a cool, chill cat. It's always nice to finally meet one of your heroes and find him/her to be what you hoped they'd be. My advice to new listeners... Don't over complicate it. If you're new to the genre, take it for face value. It's a form of music and it's not for everyone. But, if it's for you, you'll know.
