I’ve been getting a lot of great feedback about the interview in the book with Harold Mabern. Harold was Wes’ pianist for several years and is the pianist for the jazz 625 concert.
When I interviewed Harold for the book, I had a chance to ask him about what it was like to work with Wes, both as a musician and as a person. Harold offered insight in Wes’ practicing habits and also talked about how they worked together.
I’ve decided to post the whole interview to the web. Please keep the comments and feedback coming.
