My Jazz Story
I love jazz because it's clever in all departments...
I was first exposed to jazz listening to a Tommy Dorsey EP in 1964 'Love was blown away on the night wind' was the standout track. ...
I met John Scofield at the Brecon Jazz Festival...
The best show I ever attended was Loose Tubes at the Barbican.
Maria Schneider jazz orchestra is favourite big ensemble.
The first jazz record I bought was 'Weather Report-Stormy Weather...
My advice to new listeners is to listen to new and old classics so as to start to get the references.
