My Jazz Story

I was first exposed to jazz when I was a kid at around 7 years old - Louis Armstrong's Cheesecake (we kids loved the way this song begins), So long, dearie; Mame; Tiger Rag, all that: I just couldn't get enough of those songs! The whole thing got to me right away, couple of years later I went to see the great OP with Martin Drew and Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen - unforgettable, just like in the song!
