My Jazz Story

I love jazz because... I played trumpet as a youth and came in contact with jazz early, but I was never a musical guy so it went on with jazz photography instead. I was first exposed to jazz... Early. My parents listened a lot to jazz at home. The best show I ever attended was... One of the most memorable concerts was a small one with Hugo Rasmussen and Jacob Fischer at a small club in Copenhagen a very warm summer evening some years ago. Chick Coreas Freedom band with Kenny Garrett, Roy Haynes and Christian McBride at Montreux Jazz 2010 was also awesome! The first jazz record I bought was... Don´t quite remember but I think something with Miles. Maybe Kind of Blue?
