The head went by in about 4 seconds, they pushed me up to the microphone and the rhythm section stopped!
I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with Bob Mintzer for over 25 years. Simply stated, he is one of my heroes. I will never forget hearing the first incarnations of Bob's big band at Seventh Avenue South in the 1980s. Some of the most electrifying and inspiring music I have ever experienced. Bob continues to inspire all who hear him and are fortunate enough to play his music. I am honored and grateful to have been a member of his big band for the past two decades. It was a pleasure to sit down with Bob last month to discuss his incredible career and his approach to music and life. Enjoy!
