Mr. Shapiro has been listening to popular music on radio since 1957, at the age of seven and growing up in the New York City area. Presently a resident of New Orleans, he has been writing about music since his college years and he now reviews new CD releases for WHERE Y'AT magazine in New Orleans. He enjoys many musical genres, ranging from 1950s doo wop and R&B to the early British Invasion to blues and straight-ahead and contemporary jazz. He also enjoys the traditional (Dixieland) jazz and brass band styles that originated in New Orleans and he is proud to be living in the city where jazz truly began.
