“The world lost a great drummer today. Jimmy Junebug Jackson spent 21 years with the great Jimmy Smith and worked with a lot of incredible artist’s. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to work with Jimmy on many occasions and I was proud to call him my friend. After we got to know each other, I sat down with Junebug and did an audio interview with him on my ibook computer. The noise can be rather distracting, however in spite of this, Jimmy offers words of wisdom in this un-edited and raw interview. I would encourage all drummers/musicians to take the time and listen to the words of the late Jimmy Junebug Jackson. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on.” – Joseph Patrick Moore

Years ago I scribbled several quotes that really effected my outlook on music, creativity and life. Recently, I found this paper of quotes in a shoebox of memories. While I do not know the author, I thought it was worth blogging/posting and sharing this:
"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful - yourself."- author unknown

On September 29th, I gave a workshop/performance at BassUp 2007 held at the Atlanta Bass Gallery. It was a wonderful day of performances and clinics featuring the bass talents of: Jeff Schmidt, Bernhard Lackner, Christopher “C3′ Cardone, Gary Wilkens, Russ Rodgers, Darren Michaels, Myron Bennell Carroll and Trip Wamsley.
Darren & CindyMichaels organized this event (as they have for several years). Kudos to the both of them! They were so respectful to all the participating artists and they made extra efforts to see that BassUp ran smoothly. Darren is such a talented artist in his own right and is a thoughtful and engaging human being. Much love goes out to Darren & Cindy Michaels for organizing such a great day.
In addition, Jim Rubio (owner of the Atlanta Bass Gallery) was so very gracious to host this event. By the end of the day, Jim had virtually given everyone in attendance numerous promotional items such as strings, shirts, stands and even a $1000 dollar bass preamp. Regardless of where you live, if you need any bass gear, you should contact the Atlanta Bass Gallery. Jim Rubio is providing an amazing service to bass players everywhere!
All in all, I was honored to have been asked to participate in BassUp 2007. I always enjoy meeting lovers of the low end:)

On June 3rd & 4th, I participated in“The Bass Club of Georgia’s” annual bass workshop/master class/performance at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. It was a wonderful two days of bass related workshops and performances for the Double & Electric Bass. Their was an incredible line-up of artists that included Richard Davis, Donald Palma, Mark Bernat, Doug Sommer, David Goodwin, Todd Markey, James Barket and many other talented performers and instructors. My role was to work with the electric bassist‘s.
It was a true honor to have shared the stage and participated with many of the notable players listed above. Kudos to Mark Bernat and David Goodwin for pulling this off and for inviting me to be apart of the 2007 Bass Club, I believe a great time was had by all.
Until next post…peace
Recently I’ve been reflecting on nine principles of life. I would like to share these with you:
1. Aware of Higher Self – Listen to your inner voice.
2. Trust – Surrender, let God handle the details.
3. Observe – Look at the world, allow it to be. Don’t judge, just observe, learn and grow.
4. Attract – Have a mental picture of what you want in life, guard it.
5. Receive – Accept the natural flow of life.
6. Connect to God – Lift yourself out of your body, float into space, observe the planet, ask for God’s guidance.
7. Pray – Meditate. Use sounds to change the vibration of your frequency.
8. Patience – Be totally free of judgement and timing of delivery. When things do not appear to be materializing the way you planned, remind yourself that you are patient and unnattached to any particular schedule. Contemplate how God has been patient with you.
9. Thanks – Be thankful and avoid complaining. Ask yourself, “How may I serve?”
