My Jazz Story

I love jazz. I was first exposed to jazz by Mrs. Poor, my third-grade music teacher, who played us Coltrane's Om, and A Love Supreme. (She later became Mrs. Banker, so maybe she was onto something! Later I had a jazz aficionado for a HS Band Director, Bill Machold, who also played us A Love Supreme and lent me records. I met Marty Ehrlich playing in a big band in HS, and ended up playing with all the great players who went through my college town. The best show I ever attended was perhaps Sonny Rollins in Austin Texas, which I walked to, in the pouring rain, with a pieplate o my head. Don't ask. The first jazz record I bought was... My advice to new listeners... Or whatever else you have in mind.
