When I was younger Jazz was not one of the music genres that I would listen to. It didn't make sense to me, well it wasn't 4/4 time but much more complicated. My friend and colleague who hosted the Jazz show at my college radio station introduced me to Jazz. These days Jazz is continually expanding and artists are stirring the pot. But there are those that still love traditional Jazz but done their way. Jazz pianist, Christian Sands is an Indie Jazz artist to watch.
