Introduction Jazz is daunting- fans of the music tend towards the obsessive, and it is often difficult to find a way in to the music. My hopes with this blog are to explore what makes jazz so vibrant and engaging to me, and thus to hone ideas for my next band (which I'm calling 'eleventy-two'). I consider myself a fan and a dedicated listener, but by no means an expert. Let the listening begin!
