“I crave playing. I would play seven nights a week if I were called to do it. Last Thursday I was called to do an 11-piece soul band in Providence: four horn players, three singers, and a four-piece rhythm section, bass, drums, guitar, and keyboard. They had two books that were like phone books for charts. Every note was written, which is very challenging for a bass player, to have to read that kind of music on the spot all night long. The next day, I taught a reading lab, and I said to them, ‘Don’t think this is just an extra credit. This isn’t just something you need to do to graduate Berklee. I can guarantee you the better you read the more hirable you are as a bass player.’ And I used that night as an example. And because I was able to read, not only will they call me back, but all the guys wanted my card, and they will then call or recommend me. That’s just how it works.”
