Although I love jazz profoundly and it is my favorite music, I am moved by creative music of all genres.  I am not a musician (yet), so I take pride in introducing others to something they have never listened to (“gladly beyond”).  Hereinbelow are some links to just a very few of the musicians that I consider to be the most brilliant and inspiring.  But first, some photos of musicians I’ve had the privilege of meeting in person.
