I’ve been working kind of classical for many years, with music, composing, for instance, and actually listening, but I don’t think I really left jazz, it was a great part of me when I studied and later.

Earlier too, used to be a ragtime maniac from age 12-13 onwards, played a lot of Scott Joplin, Zez Confrey and the others. I didn’t have a great technique, but somehow made it work anyway. I loved showtime things (Dizzy Fingers) but also slower pieces in minor, by Joseph Lamb, for instance (Ragtime Nightinggale).

But I’ve missed a lot of jazz in listening the last 20 years. Here is a concert with Chick Corea, one of my favourites.
