One the great things about having done this book is getting to connect with so many warm and talented people along the way — from the greats like Harold Mabern to incredibly hip business people like Laurie Goldstein (president of Taggie Music) to fellow musicians and Wes fans from around the globe.
I thought I’d use this space to occasionally mention a new friend, starting with New York bassist Phil Palombi.
Phil is an outstanding straightahead bassist, but we first connected about his experience writing a Scott LaFaro book. Phil was very generous sharing his knowledge of the whole process, including copyright law, marketing and distribution.
And most importantly, Phil’s Scott LaFaro book is a musical treat. Incredibly accurate and well written. A must have for jazz bassists. Check it out here
