Pianist Larry Vuckovich narrates his exciting jazz journey that began as a child in Yugoslavia, under the Nazi occupation and later a Communist dictatorship. Access to Armed Forces Radio and its broadcast of American big band music came to symbolize freedom for the young classically-trained musician.

Then, like a movie, opportunity suddenly opened for him and his family. They were allowed to immigrate to the U.S., home of jazz, and more specifically, San Francisco, which like New York on the other coast, was the lively center of bebop music and other jazz styles. One door after another opened for him, leading to performances with jazz legends, such as Vince Guaraldi, Mel Torme, Jon Hendricks, Dexter Gordon, Philly Joe Jones, Lenny Bruce, Ornette Coleman, Charlie Haden, Tony Bennett, Bobby McFerrin, and many more.
