Seems like you guys are into varied whatnot. What's your favorite show? What's that live show that really defined your musical taste and possibly seared into your cranium on a 'defining self' type level?
I was classically trained in piano since age 5, but didn't play any jazz or do any improvisation until I was in my early teens. When I started performing live jazz/rock fusion in high school, I developed an ever-lasting love for the style. I saw Manteca, a Toronto-based latin-jazz band, and was hooked. I enjoy music on a "creativity & technical difficulty/complexity" level, which sounds pompous but really isn't; I just get something different out of music than others do.
