My Jazz Story
I love jazz because it resonates with my soul. I feel connected when I listen or sing.
I was first exposed to jazz via the great American songbook.
I met Blossom Dearie in March of '93 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.
The best show I ever attended was a Playboy Jazz at the Hollywood Bowl with Diane Schurr.
The first jazz record I bought was Brubeck's Time Out.
My advice to new listeners listen to the radio. I got nearly all of my Jazz education from Steve
Jazzman Williams at KUER SLC in Utah.
Some one mistakenly called me Jazz recently instead of Jaye but I know why my Dad
named me Bird!
