Happy New Year to all of my JazzWax readers around the globe and to my Facebook friends and 10.7K Twitter followers! As a New Year's Day treat, I'm sharing a link that pianist Leslie Pintchik sent along featuring the splendor that was Shirley Horn. In the video, she sings and plays at the International Jazz Festival in Bern, Switzerland, in 1990, backed by bassist Charles Ables and drummer Steve Williams. Part 1 leads into the next five parts. So just sit back in your pajamas or sweats and enjoy. As you'll hear, a relaxing way to start 2019.
I love jazz because it is the most diverse music genre.
I was first exposed to jazz a long time ago.
The best show I ever attended was Henry Threadgill's very very Circus at SJU jazzpodium in Utrecht.
The first jazz record I bought was Coleman Hawkins Big Band live at The Savoy Ballroom 1940.
My advice to new listeners is to attend as many concerts you can even though you may not know the musicians who are playing.
