Robert Bush has been involved with Jazz as a musician, listener and supporter for over 30 years.

I began my adventure into jazz and improvised music in 1976 around the time I graduated high school. A performance by the Jean Luc Ponty group provided my entrance into this world.That lead to John Mclaughlin (seeing Shakti in 1977 is an experience I will never forget). Eventually my tastes grew to include the jazz of the fifties and sixties, especially John Coltrane and Miles Davis. That led to the avant--garde, particuarly Pharoah Sanders, Eric Dolphy, Archie Shepp, Cecil Taylor. I witnessed many modern concerts of this nature-- i.e. Jack DeJohnettes' Special Edition, Old & New Dreams and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Studied guitar with local icon Peter Sprague and gigged around San Diego in various ensembles. A career in music wasn't to be, but I never stopped listening and supporting the music. I write for the San Diego Reader,NBC San Diego,CityBeat,All About Jazz, and Just Jazz Guitar Magazine.
