My Jazz Story

I was first exposed to jazz by three of my uncles who bought a lot of jazz: Ahmed Jamal, Miles, Jimmy Smith, Brubeck, etc. For Christmas when I was in the 8th grade I requested and got Quincy Jones - Gula Metari & Walking in Space albums. My Dad was... Whaaat... and I still have the albums! Now I program!
