The Backline

Jazz is something I have always been interested in, from an early age. I was lucky enough to have this great music teacher in elementary school, Mr. Miller. I played sax, and he actually convinced a bunch of 11 and 12 year olds that they could play Glen Miller's original arrangements and perform songs like In the Mood, St. Louis Blues, and Moonlight Serenade. Not only that, we had a concert that was taped live, pressed records (yes, made out of vinyl) and sold them to support the band. I really grew up thinking every kid played on and made albums! I had been performing jazz for about 2 years before I heard my first Rock ' Roll song, but that's another story...
