David Berkman: David Berkman Plays Music By John Coltrane And Pete Seeger

Read "David Berkman Plays Music By John Coltrane And Pete Seeger" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Formative influences rarely fit into neat categories. At a certain, impressionable age, some music, like yet unlike anything else, simply manages to seep into a youngster's consciousness.
