My favorite musical genre the past decade has been jazz. I enjoy jazz for the improvisation and inventiveness of the musicians, the instruments that they master and the nature of the compositions.
Jazz appeals to my intellect. It is the most stimulating of all the music genres I listen to and that I absorb into my consciousness.
I love jazz because I encounter it a technical person as cerebral. Jazz takes me on profound and satisfying journeys.
The jazz musician I journey with most innately is Pat Metheny. I have seen Pat Metheny in concert several times live. He has taken me on some memorable, breath-taking excursions. Give a listen to Orchestrion or We Live Here and you will understand why I make such claims. I trust you will be transported.
