My Jazz Story
I love jazz because it makes me feel alive and connected to the source and everyone else!
I was first exposed to jazz by listening to Eric Dolphy- Out to Lunch.
I met Jimmy Heath at Jazzmobile at age 16. He's been an inspiration ever since.
The best show I ever attended was Chick at the BlueNote with Steve Gadd, Eddie Gomez, Michael Brecker.
The first jazz record I bought was Hubert Laws.
My advice to new listeners... listen.
