I am not a practicing musician although I played the trumpet and some bass guitar some years ago. I do have a pretty good appreciation of music and very eclectic taste, everything from Classical to Celtic, Punk to Country western (the real stuff pre 1980s) country swing, big band and lots of jazz. I have even been enjoying listening to late 70s early 80s disco due to my wife's sudden nostalgia for that music, even though I wouldn"t be caught dead listening to it in high school. Much rather listen to the Clash, Agent Orange, Jerry Jeff Walker or Asleep at the Wheel.

My interest in Jazz came about around the same time I began to really become interested in photography and has grown over the years with my growth in photography.
I have always equated photography and the process more to jazz than classical music.
