My favorite place to practice was the roof of the NYU music building looking over Lower Manhattan. Even when I wasn't going to school there [she went to NYU from 1990-91], the doorman knew me and was cool about it.

I love jazz because it makes you reach inside and outside.
I was first exposed to jazz as a student of Pat Martino.
I met Michael Urbaniak at the Bottom Line in NYC.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Martino at the Village Vanguard.
The first jazz record I bought was STRINGS by Pat Martino
My advice to new listeners stay loose.
