Albums Live from the Cotton Club, Vol. Going Home Joey has delivered us a gorgeous and passionate recording joined by bassist Orlando le Fleming and drummer Adam Cruz. FBPO: What prompted you to pick up the guitar? Was it the same reason most of us did — because everybody else was doing it and it was just the thing to do?
I thought George Harrison was it. I learned all the TV themes by ear on the bottom four strings. My reading was nonexistent and my teacher was frustrated with me. I told my guitar teacher I thought I should play bass because I liked the sound so much. FBPO: At what point did you decide you wanted to make a career of music? How did your parents feel about it?
My mother was happy to know where I was rather than being off getting into some trouble at some unknown place.
My father would later try to discourage me from trying to make a living at it. We had an awesome time playing as loud as possible and kicking the groove out hard!
At that point nothing was more fun. Soon after, I put together a real good blues band, Beale Street, with the best players I knew. We rehearsed a lot. We offered to set up and play for them like a live audition and, with the exception of one school, we got hired without being heard.
We rocked every joint with our well-rehearsed blues groove machine. Once the word got out, we started asking for a cover charge. Brown University had lots of fraternity parties and they would often call us to come play. King, Chicago and other horn band music of the time. Ed Tomassi, the alto sax player in the band, was the cat who turned me on to jazz and suggested I start listening to Paul Chambers, Ray Brown, Charles Mingus, Sam Jones, Oscar Pettiford and a long list of other great bass players.
He was really into Coltrane and Bird. Those records actually had lots of blues on them, which I related to. Although I may have not made a conscious decision, I think it was at that point I was getting hooked deeply to make a life of music.
My father had held out hopes of me joining his water filtration business. It was during the Vietnam War and there was a draft going on.Label: Les Disques Victo – VICTO CD Format: CD, Album; Country: Canada - Released: May Style: Free Jazz, Free Improvisation.
