Very nice set at South Station. The baby grand was sweet. Can you tell us a bit about how you came to play jazz and your earliest influences?
Thank you very much! They should keep that grand piano there and have regular concerts. I first studied jazz with Minoru Ozone in Japan. (he is the father of well known pianist Makoto Ozone) Minoru was my first influence, then came Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, McCoy Tyner.
