Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

I agree with you Roly. The banjo's rightful place is at the pinnacle - in other words, out of reach!

Hi Lance

I like the banjo...in the hands of a true exponent of the instrument.Indeed it was this very blog that put me onto the amazing Eddie Peabody and of course there is always the masterful Keith Stephen.
