Eddie Williams just let me know, via v-mail, that I’ve been immortalized in Down Beat magazine. Thanks, Ed. I’m pretty deep in the vibes and somewhat unaware of what is being published. A special thanks to you, Esther, John Santos, Living Jazz, Ratzo B. Harris, ISB and every other bassist in the world of “Bassie”. Of course, that includes drummers and percussionist.
Tributes, also, to Wayne Shorter, John Patitucci, Ron Carter, Rufus Reed, Mr. Klinghoffer, Ray Brown, Marcus Miller, Dawan Muhammad, Richard Fenno, Jeff Sanford, Bill Murphy, Kevin Murray, Dan Magay and so many others (including Jacqui Channel-Miller, Salim, Amani, Leslie, their mother and Dizzy and everyone else),
