Do you have any recommendations for an excellent teacher/experienced musician to get some lessons from? I plan on seeing the New York Phil. on Saturday (the 4th I believe) and Jim Hall and Ron Carter at the Blue Note on the Monday following (the 6th). How accesible is Ron Carter with regards to giving lessons* to a less experienced (I've only gigged out once and it was a disaster as you all remember... I jam every week with a guitar player on jazz standards so I am not a jazz beginner, but I am no world-wearied jazz musician) bassist? Am open to any suggestions! *I would notify them in advance... It would NOT be spur of the moment, showing-up-at-the-doorstep-asking-for-a-lesson. Also need to rent or borrow a bass in NYC... Will probably be contacting Gage, but let me know if you have any leads there, too.
