    The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” It's been nearly 40 years since the sweltering New York City summer wherein I studied with a truly great teacher: Ron McClure The wisdom he imparted to me has lasted a lifetime, on and off the bandstand. Ron recalls working with three generations of Miles Davis rhythm sections and a lesson he learned from Herbie Hancock.

    That looked like Larry Willis on piano... Was playing with the best at a very young age. But it looks like him... In a band now called Fort Apache. A Latin jazz band that is amazing.
