Here are two videos of jazz pianist Mulgrew Miller speaking and answering questions at a master class. The basic point he makes in these videos is that you must actively listen to the music to understand it and to learn to play it. Good stuff from a master musician.
Just like the title says, Moksha is featured in the Main section of today’s Review-Journal.
You can find the article online here as well as an accompanying video here.
I’ve been home from the Moksha Denver trip for a couple of days. It was a great time and I had a blast playing and hanging with everybody, as always. Peter Apfelbaum, Jennifer Hartswick, and A.P.O.S.T.L.E. all killed it!
Photographer Jimmy Iles from the Denver Examiner was at one of the shows and took some great pics.
I’m heading to Denver for a few days to play with Moksha at Quixote’s True Blue for Phish afterparties. We’re having special guests Peter Apfelbaum, Jennifer Hartswick, and A.P.O.S.T.L.E. I will be holding down the baritone saxophone chair and I’m really excited to play with so many great musicians again!!! Back in a few days.

Before Lenny Pickett was playing up in the stratosphere, there was Earl Bostic. He is completely raging on the track on this video, Up There In Orbit. This is a showcase of altissimo, both in terms of extreme range and technical fluidity.
