My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... it's the only true American music. I was first exposed to jazz... Early in life, but really began to love it about 10 years ago.when I watched the movie "Paris Blues." I met [musician name]... Kristin Korb, Jeff Hamilton, Bruce Forman, Buddy Guy (blues I know). And several other greats. The best jazz show I ever attended was... Kristin Korb trio at Alva's in Redondo Beach in May 2013. The first jazz record I bought was... Django Reinhardt My advice to new listeners... Open up and enjoy the music. Lose yourself and be amazed.
