Music in my teens

I was shot into young adulthood thru the cannon of Woodstock, Motown, the Beatles, Dylan, stones, Zep, Allmans, and landing in the fields of BeBop and swing. I devoured every book on Jazz and biography I could get my hands on. Tracing the guitar from Benson back to Charlie Christian and the trumpet and clarinet players of the 20's and 30's. I slipped into Bachs Brandenburg concertos and started hanging out at the Lincoln center library where I read every lyric collection from field hollers to Tin Pan Alley. I was raised in a Puerto Rican neighborhood where I was immersed in the Fania Allstars music and learned Congas. My clarinet teacher started the St Luke's Chamber Orchestra. All this to say I was cross trained. Hard core. And that is why I cannot tell you what style of music I play. It's a mash up
