thanks man - that gig was super fun. the first time i've ever done a trio set in the UK. if you've got the basics covered then for me, the rest is a triple play of dilligence, passion and humility. dilligence in honoring the craft and committing to your instrument; passion in a tireless appetite for knowledge, experience, experimentation and adventure; humility in knowing that the music is bigger than you and honoring the past and the music that came before you. through that kind of practice everything will come together and most importantly, you find your own voice and style of expression. make it happen!
