Are you a long-time fan, just getting into it or somewhere in between?

Long. Almost ancient.

What are your favorite venues for listening to the music?

Clubs. Jazz is best when you are close enough to feel as well as hear the musicians respond to each other. That said, I've had some very powerful experiences in large spaces, both as a player and a performer. Bottom line, no recording or sound system can match live music.

(Optional, just curious) Do you currently, or did you at one time, play any instruments?



I'm a student and lover of jazz, America's only original art form. I play a few instruments, have a professional performance background and a music degree.
