I am a Slavic musician and it is deeply inside of me.
The money in the schools overpowers the principles of the purpose.
I am more of a solo bass player and he needed somebody who would keep the role.
I actually met Chick Corea in New York, where I was staying with a bass player friend.
But I have returned to one hundred percent playing this year. I am fully back to playing full time.
I took it very seriously and got very far with it. I was pretty much on a high level when I arrived.
Miles Davis had me play and he hired me the following week and after that, everything broke wide open.
So the whole basis for jazz music is based on the fact that the bass player could not play his instrument.
I continued studying by myself in the field of jazz with my own technique of improvisation, walking bass lines, rhythms, all kinds of stuff, which I created for myself.
I did extensive, extensive recordings and made a classical CD-ROM set, which is still on the market. For ten years, it was by itself as the cream of the crop of samples.
