“Jazz washes away the dust of everyday life.”
— Art Blakey
I have been listening to jazz music since I was sixteen years old. The first album I purchased was Bitches Brew by Miles Davis, which was followed by Davis’ Kind of Blue shortly after. These two albums unlocked the door to a whole world of music, and I have never looked back. While I love jazz music from all periods, I am particularly fond of the music’s development from bebop to the free jazz of the late-1960s.
