This is a picture of me and my friend Marc Jackson and Roy Hargrove. I saw him recently at Catalina Bar and Grill in L.A. Roy remains one of my favorite jazz musicians and celebrities. I love him, his dedication to the music, and the way that he nurtures and supports his bandmates throughout the years. He’s discovered quite a few musicians and mentored them, just like he was by people like Wynton Marsalis, Bobby Watson, and Elvin Jones. I’ve seen him with a number of musicians throughout the years. I appreciate and applaud his dedication to the music and to performing it throughout the world. I had the opportunity to discover him for myself years ago in Montrose Switzerland and I’ve seen him in Europe and throughout the U.S. ever since. I pray that God allows him to promote and perform the music for years to come and that I get a chance to see him again.
