Drummer Eric Harland tells his incredible story of growing up in Houston and how he came to weigh 400lbs by the time he was 16 (he eventually lost the weight in college), attending the Manhattan School of Music, becoming an ordained minister, living with singer Betty Carter during the last year of her life, learning from legendary mentors, and exploring "time." He also shares his thoughts on practice, community, natural wine, and what you can learn about a person by how they drive.

Along the way, he mediates on his experiences with Chris Potter, McCoy Tyner, Aaron Parks, Jason Moran, Charles Lloyd and more.
