's Night Passage (Columbia, 1980), on a cassette tape given to me by one of my school teachers. Literally that same day, I took the bus to the next city and sold my hobbyist electric guitar to buy a bass guitar...
Your sound and approach to music: I hope I have one. I try to be as strong as possible acoustically, I don't like dorking around with electronics, so I have a mic and an amp. Sound has to be pulled out of the instrument. I continuously work on that.
Your teaching approach: Everyone is musical.
Your dream band: I would have loved to have been a part of Miles Davis
