“I’ve often been asked what my mindset is when I’m playing. A simple answer is to ‘serve the music being played”! Music is a conversation among players and vocalists alike. One must listen to this conversation in order to contribute. In other words, make sure your groove and pulsation adds to the mix. If people aren’t tapping their feet….you aren’t doing’ you’re job!
