Holidays are the season of gift-giving and music makes the perfect gift. So here's the first of a two part series featuring some of my favorite tunes as my holiday gift to end the year on a positive note.

My father was playing jazz and and free jazz during the '80s in Paris.
My first cassettes when I was a kid were a compilation of Duke Ellington's orchestra on side A and Count Basie's orchestra on Side B.
My first CD was a live performance of Thelonious Monk in Europe in 60's.
I saw Miles live in 1991 in Nyon Paleo Festival.
