My most memorable music moment

I thought I'd start what will hopefully become a recurring feature - my most memorable musical moment.

It can be a gig or an album. It could be an event or a musician's own lightbulb moment.

Mine has to be the day in 1986 when I visited John Coltrane's house in Philadelphia and listened to his cousin Mary talk about living there with him, listening to him play.

I felt closer to one of my jazz heroes than ever.

A couple of years later I sat on the front row at the Barbican and heard Gerry Mulligan play. That definitely gets to moment number two.
