Symphony Sid introduced Kirschner to Jazz legends Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins and many more. ‘Sid taught me the meaning of the pure sounds of modern American music”. Kirschner later began to finance studio projects for musicians who would then find a record label to distribute the recordings.
