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).

Rebecca Parris Tells it Like it is (on F/b)

Roy Haynes is at Scullers this weekend. Drummers! Have you lost your minds??? Why each and every one of you within a 100 mile radius aren't fighting over seats amazes me. One of the MOST prolific musicians of our time with more energy and experience in his little finger than a million of your heads is sharing his energy with you. Get your arses to that box office promptly!

Had to share this because it is so true whether applied to Roy Haynes or any other great musician the world over. There is no musician big enough who cannot learn from another musician.
