Jazzy Fridays: February 19 features Kirk Whalum

Back in the day at the Hilltop at SMU,I took a college course titled Intro to Jazz. became a serious student of jazz one of my college term papers was on the new artist Kirk Whalum. With pen in hand I interviewed him at Fort Worth's Caravan of Dreams and set in one of the rehearsals.I miss the Caravan,it was the best place to hear jazz in DFW.I saw Kirk every time he played in the metroplex.Now Kirk is a well seasoned star, and I still have that long ago signed autograph from him,thanks Kirk for helping me pass the grade.
This is vintage Kirk from back in the day.

All I Do is bring you the best in Jazz on Jazzy Fridays!
