From my teacher, thru me, to you

Those of you who know me know that my current main teacher is not a musician. He, nonetheless, continues to teach me more about improvisation, life, music, and how they all go together.

Today, he repeated one of his favorite instructions to his students and it really took on a whole new level of importance in life, so I’ll share it with all of you:

“Learn to do this in a way that you will enjoy doing it.”

Use of vibes in pop music

I am presently involved in a recording project with a singer/songwriter. The producer is a friend of mine and suggested to the artist that he include vibes as an integral part of the background palette throughout the recording. That's where it got interesting; when he first talked to me, he asked me to send him a list of well known recordings using vibes in that way so he could pitch it to the client. I came up with a handful off the top of my head. In the end, I got the gig by knocking out a rough of what I could do for him on one track.
