About Me

I live in India Electrical and later, automation engineering have helped me make a living over the last 40 years. Jazz has helped make my life fitful, passionate and inclusive of all the substance that gives one pleasures to be had in private and joys to be shared amongst those rare birds who revel in the same passion

My Jazz Story
