My Jazz Story

There is something inherently exciting in jazz music, that you rarely find in any other music form. The constant striving for reinvention and originality constantly brings fresh ideas to the ever changing jazz scene. It's a great scene to be a part of! For some time now I've had a particular interest in the use of clarinet in jazz. I played clarinet before I was ever really into jazz, but now I focus my time on studying the instrument within a jazz context, and investigating how to push the boundaries of its usage.

My Favorites

  1. Wayne Shorter Quartet - Without a Net
  2. Anat Cohen - Luminosa
  3. Oscar Peterson - Night Train
