My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... It is the best way I can express myself. I was first exposed to jazz... Through my grandfather when I was 7 and he played Stan Getz and Jobim I met [Harry James] when I was 12 years old and he told me to drop the clarinet and take up the trumpet. I did. The best show I ever attended was... Miles at The Hollywood Bowl The first jazz record I bought was... Benny Goodman & His Orchestra My advice to new listeners... Keep an open mind

My Favorites

  1. Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue
