Hello and Welcome

Welcome to The Liner Notes!  I will be posting some videos, photos, and comments about some of my favorite music, which is mainly jazz.  Also, some stories about the evolution of the Sherman Jazz Museum which I started in May of 2010.  As a retired professional musician, I have spent my life listening to and loving jazz.  I believe interest in jazz is dying, and maybe it would help if more of us would share our stories and the musical selections we love.  In this blog, my plan is to…..wait a minute, there is no real plan.  It’s all about improvising as I go, which is precisely what I love about jazz.  The performer is the composer, too, so here we go.  I have 98 years of jazz recordings to work with, which should be enough!  The composer and the performer will be posting soon.
