Meet Jevon J.: Jazz musician originally out of Miami, Fl. Went through Miami Southridge's music department. Left the music scene to join FIU on full jazz and classical scholarships, but was derailed due to personal reasons. Left for the US army after only two years at FIU. After six-plus years, came to Tampa, Fl where I returned to playing music.
I love jazz because it swings.
I was first exposed to jazz in Houston.
I met Joe LoCascio and Bob Henschen.
The best show I ever attended was Pat Martino.
The first jazz record I bought was Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
My advice to new listeners is to relax on 2 and 4 beats.
