Don & Ken
“My creed for art in general is that it should enrich the soul; it should teach spirituality by showing a person a portion of himself that he would not discover otherwise…a part of yourself you never knew existed.”” ——-Bill Evans

“I know that I want to produce beautiful music; music that does things to people that they need. Music that will uplift and make them happy. Those are the qualities I’d like to produce………All a musician can do is to get closer to the sources of nature, and so feel that he is in communion with the natural laws. Then he can feel that he is interpreting them to the best of his ability, and can try to convey that to others.” ——-John Coltrane

    Hi Ken, good to meet you at the nanaimo intensive. If you have a mailing list for gigs, please put me on it (particularly in the vancouver area. Maybe sometime in the future I could take a lesson or two with you.My teacher (Anne Duranceau) expressed an interest in being present at a lesson with a jazz bassist as that is not her specialty. I enjoyed the limited time we had with you and am looking forward to “ghosting” notes in my practice sessions. I appreciated the comments about playing on the front of the beat and being more percussive with the note attacks. I have a lesson tonight so I am looking forward to sharing with Anne what I picked up during the Nanaimo course.
    Take care, be well, ………..tom
