AKA the creator and manager of this website.
I started the TorontoJazz website in 2002.
As someone who, to this day regrets turning down the opportunity to play a musical instrument as a child, I decided that such a website might be a helpful way to contribute and give back to the jazz community which has given me so much joy.
My wife, Jerri, and I both love classic, traditional jazz and have been strongly influenced by many local bands, especially The Hot Five Jazzmakers and The Freeway Jazz Band, to name just two.
The goal of TorontoJazz is to provide a focus and forum for live classic jazz performed in the Toronto area - the "who, what, when, where, etc."
And by so doing, to help it flourish and facilitate the wonderful enjoyment that happens when musicians and fans come together to play and listen/watch/dance/sing to this thing called jazz.
In short, to "Share the feeling......"
