My Jazz Story

Originally from Queens, NY. Playing drums for over 40 years on L.I., New York City, Upstate NY and in Atlanta since 1996. Currently with LazJaz Trio and The Jazz Tribe in Atlanta. Have played gigs all over the U.S. and Europe. I love jazz because... it speaks to my soul I was first exposed to jazz... when I started collecting jazz records at age 13. I met ... too many to mention but standouts over the years: Dizzy, Elvin Jones, Paul Motian, Pat Martino, Ellis Marsalis, Marian McPartland. The best show I ever attended was... every jazz show is the best show! The first jazz record I bought was... Mingus Ah Um. My advice to new listeners... see what grabs you at first, and expand from there
