All Jazzed Up

Thursday, November 08, 2007
When I was in middle school, I attended my first jazz band concert. I don't think I had ever really been exposed to jazz music before that. I fell in love with the beat and rhythm of the music and was completely disappointed that the jazz band didn't have a flute - I wanted to be part of that! I still love to listen to jazz music, and jumped at the opportunity when I was offered free tickets to tonight's Gene Harris Jazz Festival Endowment Night. The night started out with some jazz numbers by local middle & high school students, followed by a couple of songs by the Boise State jazz band. For the main event, I had the privilege of listening to jazz singing legend Barbara Morrison, accompanied by Bill Anschell on the piano, Scott Reuser on the drums, Bill Ramsay on the saxaphone, and Jeff Rew on the bass. They blew me away. The music was incredible, and absolutely made my night. I even dressed up for the occasion :-)

How fun Kim! I like the cute dress by the way :). What a treat to go out on the town, all dressed up.
